Joining this tier will give you access to videos showing you how to colour small pieces of artwork following me in real-time or time-lapse.  Most of the subjects are botanical and will not be more than one hour so you should be able to create a beautiful piece of art every day.  You will also find videos showing you how to draw from life, transfer tracings to good art paper and learn about the pencils and equipment I use.

Here you will have access to real-time and time-lapse videos showing you how to create larger pieces of art that will take two hours or more to complete.  You will need more patience and your concentration levels may be tested!  However, you will learn more about fine details by working on more complicated pieces of illustration.  All subjects will be botanical but I hope to add other subjects once I have built up my catalogue of videos.

Access all areas!  There are some long and complex pieces of art here.  Time-lapse and real-time videos will show you how I've coloured these pieces.  You can use the line drawings to create these for yourself, or use my methods to apply to your own ideas.  Whatever you choose, you have probably reached a very high standard of coloured pencilling and are real to stretch yourself.  There are many hours of work in these pieces so you'll be occupied for some time.  Enjoy.

About Janie Pirie

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for getting this far and onto my page.  I've been working with coloured pencils, watercolours and pastels for many years and now I want to share with you all that I've learned over the years.  I've illustrated books and magazines and had pictures hanging in wonderful exhibitions, some winning me prestigious awards, including two Royal Horticultural Society gold medals.  I mostly use coloured pencils so I will be starting my catalogue of videos with some easy to follow tutorials for those of you who are new to coloured pencils, as well as a few more complex pieces for the more advanced, or the more ambitious!.  I'm hoping to add videos regularly, especially more complex pieces but these will take more time so for now I want to encourage all of you to enter my coloured pencil world and have a go.  You're going to be amazed at what you can achieve with a little guidance!

If I can reach my goal of 200 patrons I will be in a position to have someone come in and teach me how to develop my filming and editing skills, and to buy some new lighting.  What I've done so far has been through trial and error but I want to share more tutorials with better quality.
