Until now, you had to buy your videos and, like buying a book in a bookstore, you could only view those you purchased. It works. It works quite well. But it's not ideal.

There's no viewing limit : watch whatever you like, as often as you like; wherever you are.

And there are many more benefits and features to come.

CommendationI have found Mike's videos really helpful in my drawing development. The techniques are well explained and will work for any subject you wish to draw. I highly recommend these video tutorials if you are wishing to expand your drawing skill.

CommendationEach time I return to one of your videos I find even more valuable insights and teaching. Often, as someone improves and revisits a video, what seemed to be wonderful information is now disappointingly inane or even wrong. That's not true with your videos.

Still not sure?

The Internet is full of "Watch me draw and see if you can learn anything useful" videos. Really! Trying to find one that actually teaches isn't easy. Fortunately, Mike's videos are refreshingly different:

They're custom-made instructional videos - designed for easy learning.

They're step-by-step and best viewed in sequence. Becoming a member makes that easy.

You'll have direct contact with Mike and the forum for assistance whenever you need it - advice, guidance, or an in-depth critique. You can even request videos on specific subjects.

At the heart are clearly explained video tutorials that explore the WHY and WHEN and not just the HOW - because understanding why a technique works, and when to use it, is far more valuable than just knowing how to do it.

Take a look at this full-length example - just one of the "Erasing" videos:

Why try to do this on your own? We're here to help you in any way we can. We want to see you flourish and bloom - to grow into the artist you know you can be.

Heck! That's why the cost is so low - because we don't want to exclude anyone who genuinely wants to improve.

Join us and you can have all you need RIGHT NOW. We'll even let you know as soon as new videos are released, so you can instantly learn from those too.

My wife and I purchased Done Balin', which encapsulates all that I love to paint in oils; a long distant past when bees were buzzing and there was no pollution and everyone seemed to take life at a more leisurely pace...
