If you have been following me long enough you heard me talk about how I love storytelling in art other artist and mine, how it's almost always the first thing that hooks me on a new artist and how I've been working for years to incorporate that element in my own art. Well if you did not know, now you do :)
It's something that I have been focusing a lot in the last year, working mainly with the theme of strong women I search for a way to tell their story by doing more than a simple portrait.
Sometimes it's the choice of a color palette that will completely change the mood of similar paintings.
Another way I love to explore in my storytelling is creating what I call totem portrait, sometimes the animal is a companion sometimes it becomes part of the portrait like an anamorphosis. And that's what I want to explore with you in my class for Paint your Heart and Soul 2018. To give you an idea here's a few examples of some I did in the past.
For my second lesson, I want to share with you my technique to create colorful and realistic skin tone and how black and white photo reference can be one of your best friends to achieve that.
I'm not sure yet which animal will emerge, would it be a lady swan, an owl enchantress, a she-wolf, or a more feline temptress? Intrigue? Registration for “PAINT YOUR HEART AND SOUL 2018” is open you get

Hello to all the art lovers
So today it's my birthday, and because I finished filming all that I need for the second trimester ahead of time, I wanted to celebrate and share the joy with you.
I decided to do a GIVEAWAY for 2 full subscriptions to A Canvas Journey that will give you access to the first 7 months already published and the 5 to come.
If you are already in the class you can still participate and offer it to a friend. Mother's day is also coming up and that would be an amazing gift for any art lover who likes to explore different ways of creating.
Here is how to participate, go to my facebook page the post will be pinned at the top if it's not there yet come back in a few minutes. I schedule it to be posted at the same time than the newsletter.
Leave a comment under the post as for why you will like to join in or tag the person you would like to offer the class to. Simple as that. The contest will end Wednesday at 8pm Montreal time.
I will announce the winner live on Kabostudio page.
Each comment will be given a number (you can only enter once no cheating!) and the winners will be determined by a number generator. Only comments on the FB page will count.
Best of luck!
You can still register at any time. All my price are in Canadian money.
You can choose one trimester for $77 (less than $6.40 by lesson)
Or you can get all 3 for only $165 (less than $4.60 by lesson)
that represent hours of videos for less than an unicorn Frappuccino!
Ever since I started creating my canvas journal the response I've got with every post grew more and more enthusiast and I knew I was up to something. I've been wanting to launch my own online class for a while not but there is so many great teachers out there already I wanted to offer something different and that would feel right with the fact that even if I breath art every second of my life I still got a "day job" as a graphic designer and when I commit to something I like to deliver whats expected.
I'm offering you a monthly "rendez-vous" of 2 lessons for under $10 a lesson with a trimester registration or less than 7$ a lesson with a year subscription! That's quite a deal :) !!
If that was not cheap enough until October 13th you can register at an
$64 for a trimester and $156 for a year subscription.
Would you like to win a full year subscription ? Yes?
It's easy simply sign up for my newsletter if you haven't already do so
AND leave me a comment bellow letting me know which Norse and Greek mythology, legends and fairy tales which depict strong women throughout history would you like to learn more about this year. I will do at least one "on request" projects every trimester. :) The winner will be announce September 17th
Feel free to share with your friends on your social media and I can't wait to see you in class!
