#18 - "The Dotty Pot" Online Paint Along

Peonies have long been a favourite of my students. Let me share my tips and tricks to creating this loose, joyous painting, bursting with energy and life.

Let's paint it together!

Hi, I'm Anna

It's my mission in life to share the JOY of drawing and painting.

I believe the best way to learn painting is to paint, that the only wasted paint is the paint left in the tube, and that art should be all about encouragement, not pressure.

So come, paint with me!

What’s this all about?

With entertaining and quality step-by-step videos, a printable and recommended supplies list, this is an eCourse bursting with information and support. As always, I've included a fun (and original)  'Pep Talk' to get you in the right frame of mind.

You will start with a blank canvas and finish with a painting that you'll impress yourself with!


  • This is ‘painting with a safety net’ – I will be guiding you to paint a painting similar to mine, step by step
  • My Paint Alongs are totally beginner friendly
  • Experienced artists may enjoy the insight into my technique and style and can use the information as a ‘jumping off point’ or warm up
  • There are lots of photos, videos and text so you’ll feel supported
  • I talk about the supplies I'm using, and understand that you may be using different materials - in which case we're aiming for 'similar but different' anyway, so it's ok
  • The Paint Along is held on a private website that only registered participants can access
  • You will have UNLIMITED ACCESS once you register –  you can create and access at any time and work at your own pace. There is no deadline or pressure to paint.
  • You do need basic computer skills (know how to login and work your way around the site)
  • A high speed internet connection would be a huge advantage due to the number of videos included, but the videos are also downloadable if you want to take them to watch "off grid"
  • Personal feedback from Anna is not available via this course, however you are invited to email photos of your work or post them to the Shiny Happy Art facebook page
  • Due to the nature of the course, with password access, refunds are not possible unless there are exceptional circumstances. Thanks for understanding.
I look forward to welcoming you into my virtual studio to paint your own still life!



How do I access the classes?

Your login is via https: shinyhappyart.podia.com and you'll need your login details. If you forget your password you can reset it. Any problems, let us know (and Linda will solve them!).

What is the refund policy?

Once you’ve signed up for a class, I’m not able to refund you. If you have any questions about a class, feel free to ask me first.

What extra support is available?

Linda, Lauren and I do our best to help you with logins and questions as best we can. We also have a private Facebook group for Club Members, and that’s a great place to ask questions and share.

What supplies do I need?

I demonstrate with artist quality acrylic paints. You are welcome to use what you have, or other brands... you'll just get a slightly different result.

What sort of internet connection do I need?

You’ll be streaming videos, so I do recommend a sturdy internet connection. If you download the videos, you can watch them on your device without the internet.

Will I run out of time?

My courses are lifetime access - that means you’ll have access as long as my website is alive - so you never have to feel like you’re ‘behind’. You do what you can in the time that you have. I’m your cheerleader! You can see how long each individual video is before you play it.

We'll start with colour and end with details.

And you'll have a huge smile on your face. 

I promise.
