Juliette Crane Whimsical Animals

In Whimsical Animals, I share various techniques and characters to help you enjoy the painting process and love what you create.

By the end of class, you will know how to paint any animal, so you can easily get started and have the techniques to find your own style and be happy with the outcome.

In every video, I talk you through my painting process, letting you know when I’ve made a mistake or when I’m not liking my painting and how I work through it, so you can be more free.

Painting doesn’t have to be intimidating. Animals are the perfect thing to paint when you want to play because there is no right or wrong way.There are no fussy lips, hands or noses to paint, so it’s easy to be happy with what you create.

I’ve fallen in love with mixed media painting and out of all of the painting techniques I’ve ever tried, the one thing I always return to is remembering to have fun whenever I create. This brings joy and happiness into the process, which inevitably gets infused into your artwork and always makes anyone who sees it smile.

This workshop is intended for anyone and everyone. It’s all about giving you many places to begin so you can keep developing your own style and have fun painting…

Your owl painting class has truly been an inspiration for me and my artwork. I especially liked your thoughts about loosening up and letting your creativity flow. It truly helped my creative blocks at times. – Shaun Wingerter
Sitting down in front of my computer in the morning and logging into this class was the highlight of my day. You are an exceptional teacher and I have learned so much. Thank you for the countless hours it took you to prepare this class. You are my inspiration. I liked watching the videos over and over again and when I went to create my owl, I was pleased with what I had done…..this would not be possible without such an excellent teacher. – Jacqueline Bartels
I’ve been painting like a crazed person, one owl after another and each one different. What a great time I am having! Thank you for all your lessons and helpful hints. Watching you paint is amazing! Thank you for the “ugly” stage, I have often given up at this stage, but not anymore. I just keep on going. – Patricia Armbrust
