How it works

 

We meet over Zoom

 

 Prepare for the session to get the most out of it by:

1.Defining your goal(s) for the session(s)

Examples might include:

  • Help with a specific painting you’re working on right now
  • An overview of your work for general critique on where you are and where you want to go
  • Personalized demos and real-time practice to learn something specific or as it applies to the work in progress
  • Learning techniques that are specific to what you’d like to create
  1. Send over a link to your website if you have one, or JPEG images of your work, and the specific painting you’d like to work on
  1. Send me images if you’d like of work that inspires you.
  2. Use my calendar link to set up time for either half an hour or an hour: https://calendly.com/awcoaching

5. Once I see your session for a half hour or an hour, I’ll have your email and invite you to pay via Venmo @Andrea-Wedell or via paypal

6.Get yourself set up on zoom on your desktop if you aren’t already. It’s a free platform that works great! Have been using it since it started a while back.

7.Once your payment comes through, I’ll send you a zoom link for our call.

 

What to expect during the session

I’ll have studied both your body of work, the painting you want to work on and any inspiration you sent over.

I’ll share my screen with your image or images and comment. We’ll look at the composition, color, line, shapes, what works, what might need more work – and of course all based on what you’re trying to do with the painting.

If you’d like a demo live, I’ll be in my studio and can show you pointers as they specifically relate to your work.

You’ll angle your device towards the painting you’re working on so I can see it and you can point to it.

You might just need a half hour, you might need an hour. That’s entirely up to you. If you book multiple sessions, you’re invited to send over process images for comment and questions in between.
