WHO I AM

I am a watercolor artist who creates highly detailed paintings of people, plants, and animals, along with things that are shiny and complicated.

I’ve been working as a professional artist since 2010. Before that, I was an award-winning art teacher for seventeen years.




WHAT I DO

I may have left the classroom, but it hasn’t left me, and I have created a series of educational and entertaining art videos on my YouTube channel, Kelly Eddington Watercolors. Some are tutorials for beginning painters, some are art lessons for absolute beginners who just want to learn how to draw, and some are speed-painting videos for anyone who likes to watch something beautiful emerge from a plain white piece of paper. 

My videos take quite a while to produce, and I tend to post one per month. I spend the rest of my time working on commissions or my own original watercolors, and I post about them here. So if you support me at the $1 level, you will most likely pay no more than $12 per year, although you can fine tune the settings to guarantee it stays at $1, even if I do the impossible and make more than one video per month. :)

I also have a side gig at the U2 website atu2.com, where I create cartoons about the band--these are, of course, watercolors. I've been doing this for free since 2002, and if you'd like to slide a little money my way to support that, or any of the other things I do in the U2 fandom, I would appreciate that very much! Patreon doesn't allow creators to display multiple projects here--I had to choose between my videos and my cartoons for this page. But it's all going to the same place and will ultimately put food in my cats' mouths. :)

Here is just one video from my channel.

WHAT YOU GET 

Pledge links are at the bottom of this page. I usually release one video per month.

$1 per video
  • Patreon activity stream access—info on current paintings, shows, videos, cartoons, and projects

$3 per video
  • Ask me anything! Send me your art or non-art questions, and I'll answer them right away!
  • Everything from the lower categories

$5 per video
  • I am your on-call, 24-7 art teacher! Ask me for critiques of your work, tips, etc.! 
  • Everything from the lower categories

$10 per video
  • Two 8”x10” prints per year (your choice)
  • Everything from the lower categories

$35 per video
  • Producer credit
  • One custom 8”x10” monochromatic painting (you provide reference photo, subject to approval)
  • Everything from the lower categories


 

HOW PATRONS LIKE YOU CAN SUPPORT ME 

I’m so excited about the videos. I used to teach about 125 students each year. Now I have a worldwide audience! Astonishing. 

I would love it if some of my biggest fans would consider supporting my work via Patreon. It would be so great if I could get to know them better—YouTube’s comment section is just too anonymous to make real connections, and honestly, it's an intimidating place to go when you're the one making the videos. And it’s hard for me to help people grow artistically in a few sentences.

Supporters of all levels will have access to Patreon’s activity stream, where I’ll be able to answer questions and provide information about my non-YouTube paintings in-progress, shows, plans for future videos, and other projects. Producer credits, calendars, deep discounts on commissions, and prints are available for top Patreons.

I’ll also want to make you cookies.

My patrons will help me buy paper, paint, and (ugh) mats and frames for my watercolors. You’ll help me sustain the tiny, MacGyver-ish film studio my husband Jeff tricked out for me. You’ll prove to my students that working as an artist is a legitimate career choice. 

Thank you so much for reading this and supporting my art.

For my current videos, I've used an iPhone 4. While the quality is good, it is highly dependent on the lighting, so I'd like to obtain a more professional setup.
