"Drawing & painting tutorials that are easy to follow so you can create realistic and professional artwork, even if you're just starting out!"
Are you struggling to make your artwork look more realistic?
Confused about the supplies you need, how to choose your colours, or how to start your first layer?
Do you have some drawing experience already and really want to take your artwork to the next level... but not sure how?
Are you tired of spending hours adding tiny details to your drawings but they don't seem to look any more realistic?
After sharing hundreds of my art tutorials on YouTube,
I have learned that most people go through the same struggles, and have the same questions when it comes to learning
how to draw realistically with pastels, coloured pencils, charcoal, and more!
Don't worry... I have been in your shoes!
That is why I have created these tutorials, so you don't have to go through valuable years
of trial and error, research, and frustration!

Hi there, I'm Kirsty Rebecca!
Why should you trust me?
When I started taking drawing and painting more seriously, I discovered a lot of people using materials that aren’t archival or lightfast.
This was a problem because their artwork has the potential to fade/flake/discolour/crack over time, due to the art supplies they were using.
On the other hand, there were artists using
professional supplies, but they spent
50 to 100 hours on a
single piece of art…
which would drive me insane!
...or there were oil painters who seemed to
be speaking another language that they must
have acquired from their fancy art school…
I couldn’t find any artists who were using archival art supplies, creating the style of artwork that I liked... and also explained what they were doing in a way that was easy to understand!
I soon developed a passion for helping other artists with the same problem.
This is the reason I now create drawing and painting tutorials that are easy to follow, so you can create realistic and professional artwork,
even if you’re just starting out!
What do the tutorials include?
Every tutorial is real-time so I can take you through every step of the process.
I don't skip any important parts of the process, so you will see every stroke from beginning to end!
My videos are fully narrated so you can easily follow along and understand my decision-making process to help you gain the knowledge you need to improve your drawing and painting skills even further!
There are many valuable tips in each tutorial, along with information that will be useful for you in your future projects!
You will also have access to downloadable reference photos such as;
Main Reference Photo
This will be your "go-to" reference throughout the drawing process!
To help you see which colours are in which area of your reference photo!
Showing some of those "hidden" colours that may not be as obvious!
Starting with an accurate outline is super important! This may help you out!
A full list of supplies, including colour names, so you can follow along easily!
What does the KR Fine Art Academy look like inside?
Wondering what it looks like inside the Academy? How does the website work and how easy is it to navigate?

WHAT ARE MY STUDENTS SAYING?
"I THINK KIRSTY REBECCA IS AN AMAZING ARTIST AND VERY INFORMATIVE. FINDING HER TUTORIALS WAS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME. YOU WON'T REGRET SIGNING UP FOR HER INSTRUCTIONAL LIVE TUTORIALS, AND PLEDGING A SMALL AMOUNT EACH MONTH TO LEARN A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE. SHE TAKES HER TIME, SHE HAS INTEGRITY AND SHE CARES ABOUT HER FOLLOWERS AND WHAT WILL HELP US ALONG OUR UNIQUE AND INDIVIDUAL ARTISTIC JOURNEYS. THANK YOU KIRSTY FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR THE ART COMMUNITY"
did you know?
A lot of art instructors REFUSE to give you the names of the colours they are using for their tutorials?
Their reasoning is that you should be looking at your reference photo and choosing your own colours...
...and if you rely on the teacher giving you the names of the colours, it will always be a crutch and you'll never know what colours to use on your own projects
But I know that some people learn better when they know what colours the teacher is using!
Or maybe you just want a fun project to follow along with as a weekend hobby!
(without the hassle and stress of choosing colours!)
In my tutorials, I always let you know what colour I am using throughout the process...
so you can make the decision for yourself
whether you want to choose your own colours, or use the same ones I am using!
If you decide you want to create artwork from your own reference photo, there's no need to worry because there is a full beginners section of tutorials that will show you how!
I teach you how to choose your colours, and make colour swatches from any reference photo, so you will know exactly what to do!
POSTCARD ART PRINTS
& VOTING FOR TUTORIALS
If you like the idea of receiving a postcard with a print of my artwork, & a hand-written note each month
Or you would like to be able to vote for which tutorial you would prefer to see in the following month?
You will also have access to all of the tutorials and benefits of the lower membership levels (Silver & Gold) and every month, you will receive a postcard in the mail with one of my pieces of artwork on the front, and a handwritten thank-you note!
A lot of people like to collect these postcards to use as small art prints to display!
You will also be able to choose between a few reference photos and/or medium options (coloured pencil, pastel etc) for the following month's tutorial! This allows you to vote for the tutorials you would prefer to see!
Then my Platinum membership is a great option for you!
Are you worried that my tutorials look a little bit difficult for a beginner?
Every tutorial takes you through the entire process in real-time so I can explain what colours I am using and why, and you can see every stroke I make throughout the process!
However, if you are new to drawing, my beginner's section goes through the fundamentals for you!
In this section, I break down everything you need to know, so you have the knowledge to get started
Some of the tutorials in the complete beginner's section include;
How to choose a reference photo
Editing a reference photo for your artwork
How to start with an accurate initial outline
Choosing your colours
Fundamentals of values (and the importance)
And much more!
Once you have gone through these tutorials, you will have the confidence to jump into my "bigger" projects, or even start a drawing from your own choice of reference photo!
CHECK OUT MY STUDENT'S ARTWORK!
Would you believe that most of my students have never tried pastels, but created these drawings on their first try?
Some of these students have never even picked up a pencil in their entire life!
Following my beginner's pastel pencil tutorial has given them the confidence and skills to create these stunning pieces of artwork
... and YOU can too!
