What Is It?

Gold Plan (Apprentice Level) $29.99 a month

If you have a great DESIRE and want to learn EVERYTHING, let me help you on a journey to learn all the principles of beautiful painting. YES, it is relaxing, but challenging too. I will teach you everything I know at your own pace. If you plan to paint 6+ hours a month and learn the McNaughton Method – WELCOME to my world. (No contract, cancel anytime.)

All the benefits of the Basic Plan — plus…

1.  Additional Paintings to rotate EVERY 30 DAYS — More than two paintings a month to choose from!
2.  Additional audio with the new paintings — Fun artist tips and comments during the instructions to keep you motivated and “in the zone.”
3.  Brushwork Training — Learn how to make that brush do what it needs to do, tons of new strokes for different needs – your going to love this!
4.  Weekly Ask the Artist – Where questions from Gold members are answered in detail!
5.  Free Critiques – If you would like to have your painting critiqued and are willing to have everyone see my comments, you can submit them to me and I will choose some to critique and post. Your name will remain anonymous, but you’ll learn a ton!
6.  Monthly Contests — Competition can be healthy, fun, and motivational. Plus you learn from other’s successes. Cool prizes too.
