About Lisa Clough - Lachri Fine Art

What the heck is Patreon and how will it benefit you?!

Patreon is a website that allows me to offer one to two hour-long weekly painting and drawing tutorials and other artist rewards to a large number of people at a very low cost. It’s the perfect platform because we all benefit! You get to save a lot of money on my weekly art lessons and in turn, you allow me to keep upgrading my equipment, pay rent, and make even more videos. It’s an endless cycle of awesome!!

WHAT?! I like rewards!!! What do I get in addition to the tutorials?!

You can choose to sign up for the $4/month or $9/month tier each with a different set of rewards! YAY STUFF!

 For both $4 and $9/  month pledges - 1-2 Hour Long Painting & Drawing Tutorials  -- See my full patreon video library here!

  • 4 new art lessons each month plus over 300 past lessons/demonstrations
  • 5 monthly reference photos
When you sign up at $4 or more a month, you get instant access to over 300 of my past 1-2 hour-long tutorials plus a new lesson every single week! These videos are slowed down to real-time for some sections and slightly sped up for others. I will explain what I’m doing and why I make certain decisions in the process while I work. With these videos being so much slower than my usual youtube videos you will have an easier time understanding my layering, blending and other techniques. These tutorials vary in medium each week. I rotate between Colored Pencil, Acrylic Painting, Oil Painting, Graphite and Inktense, watercolor pencil, watercolor, pan pastels and charcoal. 
For both $4 and $9/ month pledges - 5 Royalty Free Reference Photos Each Month
Each month I provide you with 5 reference photos I’ve taken myself! These photos are usually either wildlife or still life. You can use them in your own paintings or drawings! Make sure you download yours each month because I delete the previous month to make room for the next batch of new photos!
When pledging $9/month, in addition to the 1-2 hour-long weekly tutorials (and don’t forget about over 300 past 1-2 hour long tutorials), you also get these extras! 


For $9/month pledges you also get Postcards!

  • 4 new art lessons each month plus over 300 past lessons/demonstrations
  • 10 monthly reference photos total 
  • group challenge
  • Postcard with my artwork

Each month you get a new postcard with one of my paintings or drawings printed on it! These postcards are sent the month following the month they are for (September cards go out in October etc), well they do when I’m on time. Even if I'm late on postcards (which is more often than not) and you cancel your membership, you will still get your postcards when I send the batch for the month you were a member! 


$9/month pledges get 5 Additional Reference Photos

That means you get a total of 10 new reference photos each month!

Monthly Group Art Challenges

Participate in a monthly art challenge designed to help you grow as an artist. Want extra advice on your art challenge painting or drawing? You will have access to a private facebook or MeWe group only open for those participating in the challenge where you can post photos of your work in progress and/or ask me questions on your art challenge painting/drawing. 

For $14/month pledges, you also get coloring pages and a print discount!

  • 4 new art lessons each month plus over 300 past lessons/demonstrations
  • 10 monthly reference photos
  • group challenge
  • Postcard with my artwork
  • 4 coloring pages each month
  • My cost for all prints from https://lachri.pixels.com


Each month you get 4 new coloring pages based on my artwork! Sometimes this will be based on that week’s art lesson, but when the art lesson is from a reference photo you would need to pay for (like from wildlife reference photos) I will provide another fun coloring page off of past artwork.
Can these coloring pages be used as line art for your actual paintings and drawings? Sure, but I don’t recommend it. Let me explain why.
I’ve been teaching painting and drawing lessons since 1999. In that time I’ve found that having students trace their references does help them to improve their drawing skills much faster than freehanding alone. However, I also found that you can hit a point where you’re doing too much for the student and you cross the line between helping someone to learn and just doing the work for them.
If I trace the work for you, you’re not learning to draw. You’re not learning how to take a reference photo of your own and have that tracing show you things in the reference you wouldn’t have otherwise noticed. I feel you’re skipping a very valuable step in helping you to improve your own work so that you can take any reference photo and make a beautiful painting from it.
If you want to use my coloring pages to create practice paintings you can, but you really will learn much more from tracing actual photos than my work. Besides that, the line drawing is not going to be as accurate as a photograph. I may include things that make for a better coloring page but may not be useful in your line art for your paintings.

Discount on Prints

I will have a new discount code each month that will give you my cost on any print from my print site https://lachri.pixels.com/

Extra Photos from my social media

I regularly post shots of my red eyed tree frogs, saltwater fish, greyhounds and more on my MeWe account. If you follow me there you are welcome at this tier to use any of those photos in your own artwork! I post more tree frog photos than anything else.


For $19/month pledges, you also get greeting cards and a sticker!

  • 4 new art lessons each month plus over 300 past lessons/demonstrations
  • 10 monthly reference photos
  • group challenge
  • Postcard with my artwork
  • 4 coloring pages each month
  • My cost for all prints from https://lachri.pixels.com

  • Art sticker


Greeting Card

This card is 4.6x7.2" printed on matte cardstock. The greeting card, sticker and your postcard will come in an envelope. The greeting card will always be a different painting than your postcard.

Well wait a minute, What if I change my mind?

That’s no problem at all! You’re free to cancel at any time. I promise this isn’t like a gym membership that won’t set you free! Patreon makes it very easy to cancel or change your pledge. Just go to your account settings and make any adjustments you like!
