I get asked often what student brands of paint I recommend. I also get asked why I recommend the ones that I do. The one I use in my own Studio is Abstract paint by Sennelier 

I want to be clear I'm not paid to use this paint. I do have a relationship with the owners of the Savoir-faire and we are friends. They do send me stuff and asked my opinion. However, I've never been asked to give a review. This is an idea I have wanted to do for a really long time.

This is my Friend Pierre from Savoir Faire.

Sometimes we hang out on Instagram 

pierre thumb .jpg

This event is for you. I want you to understand why I think this is a great product. Why it is worth your time and investment. I want to help you know what's available to you in this large amazing product line. I want you to know what's great about it,  I'm even going to tell you some challenges you might have. I'm going to be honest with you because I think that is what helps you the most. Of course you know I wouldn't be making a video about it unless I thought it was worth your time. However there's so many colors and different types of acrylic paint that they make you really want to see what the creative opportunities are. The live stream is at 11 a.m. est. We will be streaming from both YouTube and Facebook, so just pick your favorite. We will be featuring special sales for this event that you can take advantage of that are just for you!!

Lets Save Money

I'd also like to help you save some money so please check for the amazing coupons from art stores that are participating in the event. They were invited to take part because I honestly believe that you guys having a relationship with art suppliers is so important. Being able to go into a local art store ( when were able to go into a local art store again) creates such a tremendous sense of community. This helps you find art materials you need and discover exciting new ones around every corner, Gives you access to classes, and art opportunities that you wouldn't be able to find from home. Being aware of online retailers can help you find Art Materials when you're unable to travel, give you access to variety of large size stock items like easels or specialty studio equipment.  I think both of these things are super important.

    9x12 140lb 300 GSM Watercolor Paper Cold press in a Block pad

    What is a watercolor block? 

    A watercolor block is a pad of watercolor paper that’s bound on all sides with a coating of a rubber like material called padding compound.. You paint on the top sheet of paper and then remove it after it fully dries flat. To separate the painting from the block, insert a dull palette knife into the gap in the binding and run it around all four edges. A watercolor block helps prevent the warping of the paper when it is wet. 


    If you have a regular pad of paper you can tape all of edges of the sheet to the table with low take tape and then carefully peel them after the sheep its dry.

    Common questions 

    When is it ?

    Watercolor  is every 3 days 1 pm  Eastern Standard Time live streaming from my Facebook page.  

    How do I Join the class ? 

    Show up  1 pm EST ready to paint - Just watch from my Facebook page :   

    You can also find the the class on Youtube - 

    You can watch the streaming video class  from the page on your chosen device!  

    How much Does it cost ?

    Its Free 

    Is it hard ? 

    Like everything, it can be a little challenging in the beginning to learn how to do something new. However, watercolor is a very beginner friendly medium  and I find people can pick it up as quickly as they did acrylic, sometimes even easier.

    Can I use Acrylics ?

     You can use acrylics watered down to get some similar effects to watercolor. The paper is a good binder and prevents issues with watering down that you might normally see on canvas. There are a few differences. It's very easy to lift or reactivate watercolor.  Once acrylic is dry it's permanent.  Watercolor is very transparent and acrylic can be much more opaque.  Some techniques are different.  You can paint acrylic over watercolor. You can't paint watercolor over acrylic. I don't recommend using acrylic on fine watercolor brushes as it can build up in the ferrule and shorten the life of a brush.  Watercolor will not harm acrylic brushes in any way and you can use what you have until you're ready to buy special brushes just for watercolor. 

    Do I need to have your exact materials? 

     You can use what you have. If you have Crayola watercolors, start with those. I will talk about how to guess a close approximate color on the palette you have so you can paint along and still get a good result

    Can I view  your classes at a later time? 

    You can watch my classes after the video is done streaming both on the Facebook page and on our website

    What level of painter do I need to be ? 

    All levels of painter are welcome and no drawing is Required 

    The Hoot Guide 




    Paintings are all beginner friendly but rated in 3 levels of difficulty called Hoots

    What if you Bought our Covid Watercolor Art Kits? 


    If you purchased one of the watercolor sets that we had in our store during the initial lockdown. you may wonder what colors exchange well for the new 2021 art palette. You may also wonder if there's a difference between the tube watercolor and the half pan watercolor. In this blog I'm going to let you know what colors in your palette to use when I'm using the 2021 colors. I'm going to give you some resources to match the colors you have to the colors I'm using and just in general make your watercolor experience easier.

    How to paint a Fall tree

    By TheArtSherpa, 2020-12-09
    How to paint a Fall tree

    Horizontal Step by Step Red Fox In Fall  copy.jpg

    Painting a Fall tree 

    #1 Find a Shape that is irregular and interesting to your eye. Remember this shape is three dimensional. 

    #2 Tree Meditation for Artists

    Get comfortable, Close your eyes, and breathe in and out slowly to the count of 4. 

    To help you “ see” the tree better imagine the tree you are painting on a pedestal that is turning . 

    Now Add light to the tree from the sun. Feel how warm the sun is. Add a soft breeze. 

    In your minds picture of your tree as it is turning see the light falling on it and the breeze blowing through it. Can you see its irregular surface. How each leaf is looking for light and rain?  

    Stop the tree at the view you want to paint it. Keep the light shining on it and the breeze blowing through it. The tree you are painting today is a living breathing thing. Do this for 5 or so minutes until you feel you can see your tree clearly. Once this is done your Artists mind is open and ready to paint. 

    Open your eyes. 

    #3 Paint in your deepest fall value for your tree keeping your base tree form. Use the edge of your brush scumbling in the leaves softly. Add your truck and some Bark highlights. Add the deepest value of landscape around the tree. 

    #4 Add your darker midtones finding those highlights and leaves. The ones you visualized in the shade of other leaves nearer the light. These are the leaves where a small bird may be resting in the heat of the day.  Can you see the form? Can you see the shapes?

    #5 It’s time to find the next layer now a brighter lighter mid tone! WOW this tree is coming together. With the corner of your brush add little leaf outliers. Remember your tree those leaves twisting in and out of the light? By now you should see dimensions of form coming out of your canvas. 

    #6 Finally the highlights are lifting up! Bits of highlighted sparkle. Tree glitter. These are the leaves shining in the sun. Yes that is what Shining in the sun means. The diamond effect  all around your trees. The glow. Add delicate touches. 

    #7 Now breath. You have painted a tree. A great Tree! A fun Tree. Keep practicing your artist eye when you are bored or falling asleep. In no time your dreams will be full of comforting branches.

    Acrylic April

    This was the first year for Acrylic April. Painting daily is the #1 thing an artist can do to improve their painting! skills! The idea we would meet live every day and paint together for a little under an hour for the month of April certainly caught fire. This is a wild event in that we had both word prompts AND full lessons. As far as I know it this was the first daily painting program targeted at beginners. You can find all the videos in order And here is the website with rules

    Acrylic April Testimonials

    • Lydia Duncan-Mabry : That I truly can do grandmother was an artist and I never really tried thinking I wasn't going to be any good. Now I know I can and I am learning more every day.

    • Kelly Malouf: ACRYLIC APRIL SHOWED ME quite a lot of things. I can make time to paint every day. I can do paintings I never thought I could. I can commit to doing something that makes me happy and that is OK. All paintings have an ugly phase--but now I know how to get myself out of it ;). I didn't think I'd see improvement, but I did and by completing the 30 day challenge I became proud of myself--such a great feeling.

    • Lisa Swain Stickability: is 95% of ability!

    • Catherine Socha Rathbun :... never to look at a painting thinking, “I can’t possibly paint THAT yet.”

    • Nancy Beeles Lewis: My life time dream at 80 could come true and I am now an artist.

    • Peggy Ducolon Smith: April Acrylics 2019 showed me that practicing every day will improve my techniques even when I thought I had learned it well already and that everyday can and is a learning experience of some kind (just because I did not like the painting I still learned something that I NEEDED TO LEARN

    • Keff Green: You have time if you make time. I worked full time and still got my painting done and enjoyed it to the max!

    • Darbe Lopez: Acrylic April taught me how important it is that other household members support my "me" time

    13 days of Halloween

    Every year we meet up to do 13 Halloween paintings. This is so much fun and at this point we have more than 30 total Days of Halloween tutorials. In fact we created a Challenge for anyone that painted all 31 days they would get a free month of Patronage on the website.

    I have been busy like a Sherpa getting ready for Lifebook 2020. You might wonder why I keep doing Lifebook?

    Sign up HERE

    use the code LOVEBOMB2020 for 20% off before December 31


    I like doing Life-book because it allows for so much growth and well-being with any students. As a teacher, I'm excited about anything that will help you reach your personal art goals. This is one of the only programs that I will participate in and recommend. I do that because I truly believe it's wonderful on every level. First, I enjoy how positive the program is and how focused on individual grow it is. Secondly, the teachers are the best collected together I have seen if your goals are healing, self-awareness, and artistic growth. Last, but not least, the cost of the course outside of materials is very good compared to other programs like this that I don't feel are as richly thought out, driven by a sheer love of sharing creativity, and well-being.

    They have a lot of Teachers

    As you may be aware with 30 teachers and 80 lessons there's a lot here to the course. You will be exposed to so much in different styles and thoughts in art. Each teacher brings something very special to the year. Yes, there are many faces. But that's just the surface of what I've seen. I've seen dream catchers, sculpture, rock art, and much much more. In fact as a teacher, I am a bit of an odd duck in the group BUT, when am I not? This will be the third series that I have done with Tamra Laporte. I love the work that she does both spiritually, musically and artistically. I think she curates valuable programs for her students .

We would like to ask you, if you could, to switch your donation to the new patron system. But if you cannot, because you need to be donating through PayPal, please write and let us know what your donation amount is so we can match you to the right patron level manually. Also, if you want to donate through PayPal because it is your only option, until we can get through the hoops that PayPal wants us to get through, please use the following link to set up your 'recurring' donation. Then please also write to support and let us know which level you are donating at so we can manually get you into the corresponding patron level on the website. We hope this helps those of you who want to donate but can't any other way than PayPal. We do ask if you can though to donate through the website.

    A note From The Sherpa:

    Hey guys thank you so much for all the support. The Patronage has really let me explore some my wilder idea's. Things I could never put on YouTube. I love our group so much. From our wild behind the scenes chats, strange long in group live streams and even to painting projects I have been itching to do. Like this Patron group only pastel. OHH she was fun

    New Years Resolutions for Artists

    new years .jpg

    What you guys had to say !!

    • Joanne LaMar : To paint at least every month. To learn how to sell my paintings instead of just giving them to people who want them and to try new techniques in my paintings. Be bold.
    • Roseann Amaranto : Accept my artistic style for what it is. I’m more of a whimsical illustrative painter/artist even though I have an art degree and taught for 25 years. It’s what makes me happiest 🌹 💕
    • Tammy Racicot :To keep evolving into the artistic butterfly I've become. (never in my lifetime did I think I could achieve so much personal growth on so many levels from the most loving person/people who wanted me to succeed. When I never thought I could)
    • Renee Sanders : My artist New Years resolutions are to paint one painting of something I love every month, participate in Acrylic April and paint something new daily (only April) and paint enough wood circle ornaments to sell at the grandkids secret santa workshop. I am going to make myself a priory. I have put myself and my ambitions on the back burner for 2 years to raise my grandchildren, although they are still with me I am going to find some time for myself
    • tanya mARTin: Draw and paint everyday. Trust myself enough to venture away from tutorials/art hacks and find my own style. Continue to improve on what i have learned and step out of my comfort zone. Try new mediums and see what they have to offer.
    • Caren Kaziyev: To challenge myself and not stick with familiar techniques. In 2020 I challenge myself to try new things and be okay with my attempts not looking “perfect”. Just to keep at it.
    • Pamela Tilley Fisk : To stop judging myself against others. See my own colors.
    • Kim Nedland : To try and paint, and draw, even if my depression, makes me feel like can't do anything at all.
    • Brandy Orner : Just paint. Stop agonizing over planning, research and details and JUST PAINT!!!
    • Bryon Rice To paint more of how I feel, even if it's not that others can feel the music I composed, which is the paint and the brush my instrument.
    • Stacey Wright : to organize all my supplies so I can start using them everyday!! And then start drawing/painting more often at least 3 times a week.. Hard when you have 2 little girls 4 and 7! Also my 7yr old is an amazing artist already and want to work and teach her more so I need to learn more and practice more to teach her skills i wish i was taught at a young age!! So hoping to do alot this year with her
    • thetolleycrew : My resolutions are to get out of my comfort zone, and paint loose. Not worry about every little detail. To find my own style.
    • luanajarecki : To enjoy life as it handed to me. Find humor in every aspect. Release my creative juices and make any art I can. At 71 I plan to do much more.

    Steam Punk Girl

    By TheArtSherpa, 2017-02-28
    Steam Punk Girl

    Steam punk is an amazing art style! This painting has a project  for how to create the patina for the background. A how to Draw the girl in that was LIVE on fb. We covered her in two awesome body types. BUT due to enthusiasm to create designs that are even more inclusive I went ahead and made her in 3 body types for the traceable. It is important that in a personal creative Process we create work that has a positive reflection of our world. A positive reflection of who we are and the people we love. I would encourage you to take advantage of the Hair and  Skin quests as well at the 3 trace-ables so that you can create a painting that feels personal. Paint yourself into your steampunk fantasy.
