WHAT MY PATRONS ARE SAYING ABOUT PATREON:

"I discovered digital art about 9 months ago and came across Aaron's youtube tutorials. They are very easy to follow because he explains every step perfectly. I became a patreon soon afterwards and have not regretted that decision. It's really worth it. I like the rewards and I'm learning a lot from watching your tutorials and following the courses that you made." Soraya U.

"I find that Aaron's tutorials are at a good level for me and I don't mind sending him a few dollars each month to help him with his work. I like to explore the new brushes he makes available via Patreon every month. I have been a Patron for about two years." Glenson J.

"Giving rewards is a kind thing to do but-- I certainly don't expect them. My reward is when I send you a picture and you reply! Good, bad or ugly - you reply. I pledge because I see value in the act. Your tutorials and classes have been a great help to me in understanding how to benefit from using painter. You show me how to improve and enjoy one of my dreams - painting. THANK YOU." - Thomas I.

"I was a painter in oils and acrylics until a stroke made that impossible. Now, I am retraining myself to work digitally. There is a steep learning curve, but you are a tremendous asset. The beauty of your work, coupled with the clarity of your instructions, makes this page an invaluable resource." - William W.


"I enjoy the Patreon page content and feel I have really learnt and benefited from it. It's great to have a forum to share your art. I always look forward to the new brushes each month and seeing Aaron demonstrate how to use them. I think the content offered is good value for money." - Linda B.

Goals
$1,516 of $2,500 per month
Gear Upgrade 2018
Once this goal is unlocked, I'll be able to upgrade some of my video recording gear. For example, I'll purchase the new GoPro Hero 6 which I can use for my Digital Painting Outdoors series to get a first-person view of what I'm painting. There are also some other things I can purchase that will improve the quality of my videos.
