FREE Artist Resources
Why FREE Resources?
A lot of people have freely helped me to become the artist I am. None of these have charged me and thus I'm not charging you.
I want to help you to create and experience success, like I do.
If you don't find what you're looking for here...drop me a line, maybe your question is easy for me to answer. You've nothing to lose by asking. CONTACT me

Weekly life drawing sessions (female & male) with the "Croquis Cafe". Croquis also supplies a large stills gallery, details gallery, 360 degree rotations for sculpting and method-tutorials totally free of charge.

Tips & Tricks:- Extending your Paint Supply
Dilute commercial PVA glue, 1:3 with tap water (school & crafting PVA glue can sometimes be too thin to use for this)
Use this glue-mix to then dilute your acrylic paints, 1:1.
This makes paints go further & helps them stick to your canvas better.
You can also use this method to add "texture" to a painting by adding rough bits, like sawdust, to the paint/glue mixture
The PVA mix sets rock-solid and helps protect your painting too!
This is also important for the "Acrylic Pouring" method of painting.
