Dedicated to teaching you the skills needed to draw and paint successfully.
Hey! I’m Don Stewart. You’ll notice that I produced a lot of the videos here on the ArtistChronicle channel in 2009 to 2013. Where have I been? Well, in 2013 my priority became getting better at teaching offline. But now, in 2020, I’m online again! With renewed zeal and dedication to providing quality how to draw and how to paint video lessons!
This video is one of the latest and more with this new format are coming soon. But, whether you watch the latest or videos from a decade ago, I genuinely hope you find them all to be informative — and any kookiness to be entertaining. Hey, learning should be fun! You remember more 🙂
