Practice makes perfect!

Beginner Tutorials
Each month I will be sharing a tutorial aimed at beginners to coloured pencil. The same high detail realism, but really broken down, and going back to basics. Keeping the pencils I use to one brand where I can, talking about all the things more experienced artists take for granted, but that really do create a great foundation for your work.

Focus Videos
You will also have access to new focus videos each month, each video will be at least one hour long. These videos may be focussing on eyes, noses, fur types, or may well be a full tutorial that isn't quite as long as on the $10 tier. Full real-time with voice over including the high resolution reference photo, line art and a materials document 

Group Social Media Pages
Access to my group Instagram page, have your work shared, plus access to my Patreon only Facebook group

Patience is a virtue

With coloured pencil patience really is a virtue.

Full Tutorial Videos
With this tier, you will have access to all the rewards from Tier 1, plus a full real time tutorial that could be up to 40 hours long. I talk you through from start to finish, giving you hints and tips along the way and giving you full access to my techniques. You get to hear my thought process around colour, what works and what doesn't, you'll see real time how I overcome any issues I may encounter, and I show you how to rectify mistakes - because let's face it we all make them. I also add quite a bit of coaching into my videos, helping with confidence issues and self belief. You'll also get to know my dogs as they feature in my videos quite a bit ;) 

Back stage pass
I'll be sharing images of my current pieces that won't be shown on social media, I'll share videos of the people I work with so you get a glimpse into how my art business works - it could be talking with my framer about choosing the right frame for a piece of artwork, or showing you how they created the mounts I use for each piece.

Exclusive Patreon Only Monthly live Q&A sessions
Each month you will have the chance to ask any questions before the event, and then join in when it all goes live. Live demos and answering further questions. These are now held via Zoom so we can all get to know each other and chat.

About Bonny Snowdon

Welcome to my Patreon channel - and a huge thank you for coming to have a look at what I'm doing.

Please note that when you join you will be charged straight away, your next payment will then be the 1st of the following month.

New Members: everything you need to know, plus some really useful documents, and links to good tutorials to get you started

A dedicated members website with all my tutorials grouped into subject and surface and well as tiers.

I'm a coloured pencil artist from North Yorkshire in the UK focussing mainly on drawing animals of all kinds, although I'm usually commissioned to draw pets and horses. 

So why should you become a Patron of Bonny Snowdon Fine Art?

Well, if you are wanting to develop your coloured pencil skills and techniques, if you're wanting to create realistic animal portraits with eyes full of expression and fur you can almost feel - I can help you. I have honed my techniques over the last few years and am now creating real-time, voice over videos talking you through step by step how I create my portraits. And it's not just 'use this colour here and this colour here', it's a full explanation of why I'm using certain colours, how certain colours work differently on the surface I'm using, how different pressures can create different effects and how you can use different tools in your quest for fabulous fur! I am a performance coach and am offering you access to coaching/mentoring and critique - if you're wanting to take your art to the next level and make a living from it, I can help you build business plans and campaigns if you opt for my coaching tier - level 3.

Not only will you develop your skills, you'll also join a growing community of like minded artists, you will build relationships, share your work, learn from not only me but other artists who have different techniques. Depending on what tier you join, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with me, have your work published, and generally become part of something that is positive, kind and motivating.

So if this sounds like it could be for you, choose from the four tiers in the column on the right and we can get started!
