patrons
I'm an artist living on the northernmost edge of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Your patronage enables me to spend time painting and writing about painting, creating my monthly painting projects, and keeping my website advert free.

If you've searched online on how to paint, you've likely come across one of the articles in the 12 years I wrote for what used to be Painting.About.com (now called Thought Co.). By being a patreon, you're helping me write similar, and better, new content. The Community section of my Patreon is a members-only forum, a space to get share and ask questions, including monthly painting projects.

Working on the "it all adds up" principle, if you pledge the price of a cup of coffee a month, this adds hours I can spend writing and photographing articles (and one day video if my rural broadband ever gets upgraded ). What's great about Patreon is that it's on-going support, so if you think "I could afford $25-ish to help out," then you select the $2 a month pledge and it gets spread out over a year.


Tiers
A Wave in My Direction
$2 or more per month

Wave in my direction, saying hello and supporting my daily artistic work in the historic tradition of artists and patrons.   

Monthly Painting Project Extras
$10 or more per month

Access to exclusive extra material supporting the monthly painting project on my blog (starting January 2019), plus a short critique of your project painting via email or in the community section of Patreon.


Extras will include things such as:

  • step-by-step demo of my version of each month's project
  • tips for composition
  • suggestions for mark making and layers
  • video
  • behind the scenes
Solicited Criticism
$20 or more per month

Get a thoughtful, constructive critique of one of your paintings or drawings each month, via email. I'll tell you how to improve or develop your painting, or at least what I might do differently. Plus access to all my Patron-Only posts.

Towards an Art Workshop on Skye
$20 or more per month
Every month's patronage accrues to 30 minutes workshop on Skye with me, either on-location at my favourite spots or indoors out of the weather. A way to plan ahead for that trip to Skye you've been promising yourself. 


(Transport to Skye and accommodation for your own arrangement. Dates of workshop by arrangement. depending on my availability.)


  •  Access to Patron-only posts.
Your Own Little Sheep Painting
$55 or more per month

Each month a new little sheep painting (on canvas, 15x15cm/6x6") will make its way from my studio to you, building up to create your own little flock. Colours, backgrounds, will be a surprise. There may even be a sheepdog one month. 


Plus access to all my Patron-only posts. 

Goals
23 of 50 patrons
When I reach 50 patrons, I'll write a step-by-step of a painting with 50 photos to celebrate. Including photos of my brushes, palette, colours, details.
