Develop Your Painting Techniques
So That You Can Master Your Painting Style
And Share Your Work With Confidence

Mastering your painting style is hard! It’s time consuming. It’s confusing and can be so overwhelming.

If it was easy, you’d be sharing your work boldly already right?
Because you know that in order to feel confident sharing your work, you need to have a recognizable style.  
Yet you feel like you're spiraling in your studio with all these ideas 
but you just can’t seem to bring them together and make them your own.

Too often as artists we try to do ALL THE THINGS and figure it all out by ourselves. This can lead to...

Wasted Art Supplies + Time

Lack of progress in our work


Loss of confidence in our abilities


Low or no sales


Loneliness and isolation


Tell me, which of these applies to you right now?


You lack direction in your studio. You have so many ideas you want to explore yet you’re not too sure what to focus on and tend to have a lot of unfinished projects.

You lack confidence to share your work because you’re afraid of what people will think. You’re worried your work looks like 'so and so’s.'

You struggle to produce a cohesive series of work. 

You’re not sure how to transform inspiration into your own unique ideas.

The vision you have in your mind isn't quite what's coming out on the canvas.



It’s time to say GOODBYE to the Struggling Artist Mindset

The Struggling Artist is a way of thinking about your creative practice and how you fit into it.
 
They dabble in their studio, DIY everything and shy away from sharing their work. 

 
A struggling artist does not have a plan for how they will spend their time in the studio.


A struggling artist doesn't invest in learning the techniques they need to improve their work.

What they do have is an expensive hobby and a lot of unfinished work.


Don’t Be Embarrassed, It’s NOT YOUR FAULT.

There's a lot of misinformation out there that tells you if you simply spend hour upon hour in your studio painting away it will magically all come together.

Here's the TRUTH!
Mastering your painting style requires both creative inspiration and technical skills.

 
Most new artists however, aren’t technically trained. Heck even art school graduates (like me) can do with going back and practicing the art of painting.

So how do you expect to master your style when you focus only of creative inspiration and not on developing your technical skills.

Imagine if there was a step-by-step program that could show you
how to take your creative inspiration and develop the technical skills you need so that you could master your style and share your work with confidence.
 
Well that's EXACTLY what I'm here to do!

To help you STEP INTO the role of a confident emerging artist far quicker and easier than you ever could on your own!

And one of the ways we're going to do that…

Just like it's done for these TCB members...


I am sharing my work more and being proud to offer it for sale

Since joining The Confident Brush my confidence has grown in so many ways. I am sharing my work more and being proud to offer it for sale. 

I am learning the skills and the technical knowledge to create an artwork that is technically correct and a quality product that I can sell and know that it will be just as beautiful for years and years.

Having this skills base make me feel less of an imposter and more of a ‘real’ artist. Natalie teaches the skills and the techniques and then let’s you adapt them to create your own individual artwork. The Confident Brush is not a ‘paint along’ it is lessons in different styles, skills and techniques that you then adapt to your own style. With this knowledge I feel so much more confident.

Week 1: Exploring Skills

Painting Technique Tutorials and Colour Focus

At the start of each month you're introduced to a new painting technique, design principle/element and/or new art style. This is designed to build your technical skill base so you can then go on to create the works you desire with proficiency. Examples of techniques/styles/colour palettes we've covered include; blending, cubism, abstraction, mixed media, collage, monochromatic, complimentary and limited colour palettes.

Week 2: Applying Skills

Guided video painting tutorial/art project

Once you've explored a new technique you are then given a guided tutorial or art project to complete that allows you the opportunity to apply the technique to your work. This is crucial to support your development as an Artist and move you towards developing your own style and technicial proficiency.


Week 3: Studio Tips

Studio Tips and Mindset

In week 3 of every month we cover a specific studio tip or mindset challenge to help support your development as an Artist. Examples of topics we have covered include; composition, what to do when you get stuck, motivation, Instagram, varnishing an art work, how to build resilience as an Artist.
 

Week 4: Live Q + A

Monthly Live Q + A with your guide Natalie

In week 4 of every month we have a live Q + A inside our private facebook group. This is where you get to ask all your art related questions and get real time feedback. Often the community will ask questions that you may yet not have thought of but will come up for you. There's tremendous power in learning together as a community mastermind like this. This is often where the deepest learning and advancement occurs.
 

PLUS! Private Online Community of like minded Artists who get you!

Ok Nat, How Much Is My Investment Into The Confident Brush!

Great question! The Confident Brush contains a wealth of knowledge and practical painting tips that I've spent over $30,000 on acquiring as I've developed my painting style over the last two decades. From investing into a 4 year Bachelor of Fine Art Degree to A  Postgraduate Teaching Degree and Mentoring Sessions with Professional Artists.

Now, you could go out and pay thousands of dollars to learn these skills for yourself, for a  Arts Course/Degree could easily set you back anything from $4,000 - $10,000.  

Or you could easily pay $500 a month to a private painting tutor
who may or may not also be a credited trained teacher.

Look, I know what it's like when you're thinking about investing into a program when most of your spare cash is going into art supplies. But the maybe the reason you're not yet mastering your style is because you're not investing in how to use your supplies effectively to get you the results you want.

Plus just think about it, once you've mastered your style, won't you feel more confident to start to share your work and start selling. Then you'll be making back your investment.

So to support you gently in this transition, I purposefully made the investment into The Confident Brush at just $47 AUD a month!

That’s right! You can join us inside The Confident Brush for just $47 today!

Hey there Creative!

I'm Natalie, an Artist and Educator who loves to support women to confidently pursue their own creative paths. You're here because you want some guidance to help you develop your technique so that you can create with your most authentic work and serve more people with your beautiful gift.

I've had a paint brush in my hand since I was 3 years old, but I too have had to put in my 10,000 hours to master my craft. Over my 30+ years I've learnt not only how to paint, I've learnt how to identify what makes a painting successful. Once you understand and master the key painting techniques and principles of composition you can begin to create work you love.

Inside The Confident Brush you'll learn how to develop your own artistic style so you can create work in your own style and boldly share it with the world. I invite you to join me and your fellow creatives as we learn, grow and flourish together.     

Student Success Stories...

The Confident Brush supports artists who are the creative seasons of...

THE HOPEFUL ARTIST

In this season as a Hopeful Artist you are full of faith and excited about all the wonderful creative possibilities ahead of you. You're dreaming of a creative future where you can create beautiful paintings in your idyllic studio. You're inspired by all the wonderful artists you see online and in person and are hopeful you too will be doing the same one day.

THE PASSIONATE ARTIST

In this season as a Passionate Artist you are all in! You're like a sponge absorbing as much as you can about all the colours, techniques, Artists, and painting styles. You're consuming a lot and producing a lot of different work. Your friends and family may have caught wind of your new found passion and may be cheering you on or dismissing this as just another 'hobby.' This can derail you if you let it, so be careful who you share your dream with, especially when this is new.

THE TRAINEE ARTIST

The Trainee Artist is a season where you have discovered the importance of learning from others in order to support your growth as an Artist. As a trainee you've humbled yourself to learn from a teacher either via online or in person. You may or may not have direct access to your teacher, this is totally dependant on your learning style. Either way, you are listening to their teaching, working through the lessons and applying it to your work.

THE EMERGING ARTIST

The Emerging Artist is a season where you are beginning to identify your own style as an Artist. You’re bold and sharing your work with confidence but at times there's still a little bit of doubt there. You may be exhibiting your work in local shows or galleries or developing an online presence.

By now you’re wondering...

"Is The Confident Brush right for me?"

It's a good fit for you if..

You're ready to develop a regular creative practice 
(In whatever capacity that looks like for you)
Too often as creatives we don't prioritise time to create and develop our work. Often life gets in the way and we feel guilty taking some time for ourselves to be in our studios. What happens though is we tend to get resentful, moody or saddened when we don’t allow ourselves creative time. There’s tremendous power and healing in creativity and when you give yourself permission to be in your studio, you are doing not only a service to your work and yourself, but you are also becoming a much happier more expressive individual for your loved ones. Committing to a membership like The Confident Brush helps support you in your creative practice and gives you gentle prompts to spend time in the studio. Whether that be 30 mins a week or 2 – 3 hours a week. The choice is yours.  

You're willing to do the work

 As per above, you need to be willing to do the work to improve your skills. If the vision of your work isn’t quite what it’s coming out on the canvas, that is simply because you don’t yet have the technical proficiency to communicate what you want to say. You need to take the time to learn and refine your skills. The Confident Brush will support you with this.

You want to improve your mindset
There’s a lot of work to be done to move forward in your creative path and often the biggest hurdle is your mindset. This can prevent you from showing up, sharing your work and persisting with your artistic development. Things like doubt, imposter syndrome, fear, self sabotage, shyness and rejection can and will come up. Inside The Confident Brush we have a wonderful supportive community and specific trainings to help improve your mindset so you can continue to grow as an Artist. Because ultimately, it’s about sharing your beautiful work with the world.  

But it isn't for you if...

You aren’t willing to do the work
If you’re just looking for inspiration and not willing to apply the teachings to your work this isn’t for you. You will not progress if you don’t take the time to put in the work. If you can’t commit to at least 2 hours a month in the studio, this isn’t for you. 

You want to be a professional artist within a month
It takes time to develop your skills and find your artistic voice, let alone build a solid art business (if that’s your desire). If you’re looking for a get ‘art famous’ quick scheme, this isn’t it. Our Confident Brush members get results because they are consistent, diligent and disciplined. They persevere with their work, work through challenges (both in their work and mindset) and make steady solid progress. This sets them up for sustainable growth and success.  

You’re looking for private one on one coaching

If you are looking for private one on one coaching, The Confident Brush is not the right program for you. I do offer limited private one on one coaching opportunities, as well as a small group coaching program, Paint Your Own Path, which are both set at significantly larger investments. The Confident Brush Membership was created to balance the need for specialised art teaching and coaching in a community format for those who want one on one coaching experience without the expense.
