In this class we will create a beautiful springtime painting of two sheep under a blossom tree.
I will guide you every step of the way from setting up your stay wet palette right through to putting in the final finishing touches.
You will see me paint in real time, and I'm a very slow painter so you won't ever feel rushed.
The class is split into lessons you can stop and start when you want to.
You will be amazed at what you can create even if you haven't painted for some time.
Share your work and get feedback
Once you are enrolled on the course you will get access to a dedicated closed Facebook Group. In the group you can share your work for comments and feedback by myself and other people on the course. It's like being a part of an art community, I hope you will find this support encouraging and invaluable.

Here is my finished painting
Here's a great painting fromTracy who lives on the Isle of Wight, and it's her very first painting. I think it's absolutely fabulous, and the glitter is a great addition.
Here's what Tracy said:
"I signed up for the free Springtime Class, learning to paint the sheep in the field. I have never painted in my life and was quite nervous about it all. I ordered a canvas and some acrylic paints (I already had paint brushes for ‘crafty’ stuff that I do). It took me 10 days to pluck up the courage to start, but once I started I found I couldn’t stop ! Chrissie has such an amazing calmness about her and I found the individual videos so easy to follow. It took me most of the day to do (let’s be honest, I have all the time in the world right now)! However, I am so pleased with the end result. It’s by no means perfect, and there’s too much blossom on the tree, but I loved the whole experience.
Thank you Chrissie for inspiring and encouraging me xxx
PS I did put my own ‘twist’ on my painting - I added some sparkly iridescent glitter to my sheep whilst the paint was still wet, as I just love glitter."
