What People Are Saying:

I bought the fur tutorial and as an alreadt pretty experienced artist I was unsure how much value if get from it but definitely worth it! I learnt so much about how to use colour which is the main thing I've struggled with in my recent paintings and it helped me to refine my process and make it more methodical. Thank you for sharing your knowledge Carla!

I purchased the FUR and FEATHER tutorials with the e-books. Both are filled with so much information that covers all my questions about technique and color. Carla shared in detail her knowledge of acrylics and her process. I am excited to apply it. I know it took years for her to get to this point of realism. So worth the small investment to be taught how. Yesterday I printed the e-book on fur so I could study it. There is a lot of detail and easy to follow - page by page -of each step recommended to take .I find it helpful and very well put.
