"That One Evening" - Painting by Jed Dorsey

I Understand What It's Like to be Frustrated In Art.

I was stuck.


I was a new dad trying to make a living as a full-time artist. I wanted to provide for my wife and daughter but I NEEDED to become a better painter to do it

I was doing anything I could to make money through art. I entered my first plein air (outdoor painting) competition on a whim, and I ACTUALLY WON $1,000!
So, then I started thinking it would be easy to make money.
The next competition had a grand prize of $5,000, and I'm embarrassed to say I was kinda counting on winning as our paycheck.
You guessed it. I LOST.
No money. No paycheck.

I Needed To Get Better At Painting. And Fast.

So, I started looking for instructors, but nobody around me taught in acrylics.

So, I tried YouTube, but that was confusing and distracting.
I reached out to the few artists I'd found nationwide, but only one responded, and he wasn't teaching anymore!
I tried every connection I had and still had no luck.
I finally GAVE UP on ACRYLICS and signed up for an oil painting workshop.
I was sad, because I didn't want to toxic thinners or wet paintings in our home - especially with young children around.

Then I Had my Big "Aha!"

Right before the oil painting workshop, I discovered a couple tools that enabled me to paint in acrylics in new ways. I could paint outside easily. I could make my paintings nuanced and gorgeous. I decided to stay with acrylics, and I'm so glad I did.

Because the next thing that happened was. . .


Then I started WINNING art competitions!

People couldn't believe my paintings were done with acrylics! Suddenly, I had a new passion:

To Share What I'd Discovered So Others Can Enjoy The Same Success!

Here are a couple of my paintings! This is what YOU CAN LEARN TO DO WITH ACRYLICS!

Here's The Question:

What If You Could Make Beautiful Paintings - In Less Time - Without Worrying About Toxic Thinners Or Making a Mistake You Can't Fix?

That's exactly what painting in acrylics can do for you!
I've worked in watercolor. One mistake there and uh, oh! You're painting is ruined.
I've worked in oil. The process is slower and more painstaking because it takes so long to dry. Plus, you have to deal with thinners and odors that can be really unhealthy. 

But how do you create GORGEOUS, NUANCED, VIBRANT PAINTINGS in Acrylics?

 Acrylic 101 Will Show You Exactly How To

  • Choose which paints you REALLY NEED, and which ones you should AVOID
  • Organize your palette and colors in a CLEAR and LOGICAL way

Everything You Need to Succeed At An INSANE Price

22 Video Lessons, Four+ Hours Of Content, Creative Encouragements,  Professional Instruction, Complete Supply List, EVERYTHING You Need To Start Succeeding With Your Artwork!

Included In This AMAZING Offer. . .

Lesson 1 - Paint Tools and Warmup

We start with the basics and go over all of the basic tools you will need on your painting journey. We tell you EXACTLY what supplies you need to start painting.

I also tell you about two of the biggest secrets that transformed my painting career.

Lesson 2 - Thumbnail Sketches

Once you understand the basics of Acrylic Painting, we will teach you about the thumbnail sketch - the foundation of all successful paintings. The thumbnail sketch is like your road map. Would you leave on a massive road trip across the country without a map?? No! And no one should make a painting without a clear direction of where they are going, either.

Lesson 3 - Importance of Values

Discover the secret of values, so you can create dynamic designs and produce STUNNING EFFECTS in any painting. Train your eyes to observe the subtleties of any scene and discover the most important attribute of color.

Lesson 4 - Color Essentials

Unlock the mystery of color inside this three-part lesson. Gain understanding to color mixing, how to create any color with a simplified palette, plus how to determine the value of any color. This is essential knowledge for your artistic journey.

Practice Painting #1 (Miniature)

In this course you have the opportunity to put all your new knowledge into practice with six practice paintings! The first three are miniature paintings (6x6) which are meant to be simple, accessible and relatively fast to complete. For the first one we will be capturing a cabin overlooking sunlit water. There are some tall, dark trees and layered mountains in the distance. There is a lot of variety in this painting so you will have the chance to touch on many different aspects of a landscape.

Practice Painting #2 (Miniature)

For the second practice painting we are going to be creating a floral piece; a bouquet of pink roses in a vase. Some of the petals catch the light while others remain in the coolness of the shadows. The bouquet is set against a dark background which allows the roses to shine in the spotlight. You will have the opportunity to paint a glass vase that is translucent and reflects the surrounding light.

Practice Painting #3 (Miniature)

For the last miniature practice painting we are going to be recreating another one of my paintings; a cozy cabin tucked away at the base of a mountain with a warm sky. In each painting you will grow in your sense of design and aesthetics. In this one you will capture the smallness of the cabin in context of the huge mountain behind it.

Practice Painting #4 (Full size)

When you are done with the miniatures you are ready for full-size paintings (12x16)! In this exercise, you will learn how to paint a vibrant sunset scene with a tidal slough, grasses, trees and some background islands. You will see how a brightly toned canvas will affect the outcome of the overall painting as some of those colors poke through in the end and allow for a light-filled atmosphere. 

Practice Painting #5 (Full size)

In this lesson, you will learn how to paint a beautiful tidal  beach scene with vibrant color on a neutral gray-toned canvas. You will see what effect painting on a neutral surface has on the overall painting. The goal of this lesson, as in the previous one, is to continue to put what you have learned already about thumbnail sketches, values, and color into practice on a real painting.

Practice Painting #6 (Full size)

In this lesson, you will learn how to paint a wooded scene with various greens and grays, colorful foliage, moody shadows and the negative shapes of sky holes on a dark or black-toned canvas. You will see how starting off with dark values changes the way you paint and also influences the way you see the color and light.
