"I was searching to find a tutor that painted animals with realism. Quite by chance I found a free tutorial by Rebecca online, and that was it....hooked.

Rebecca is a born teacher, her tutorials are extremely clear and divided into different sections, making them a delight to follow. There are such a variety of tutorials, that there is definitely something for everyone.

I have only been a member for a year with Rebecca , but I have learned so much just in that short time. My biggest regret was I hadn’t found her sooner!

I encourage anybody of all age groups to try this wonderful school. I love that if a member of the school is struggling, there are constantly people driving you forward with encouragement.

Rebecca replies to all your questions at all times, and of course with her wonderful teaching drives us all forward to a higher standard all the time.

I honestly would be at a huge loss without art and Rebecca. Huge thanks."

- Jennifer

"Thank you Rebecca! I was feeling discouraged … how did you know?

I really love your realistic style and I appreciate your teaching because you seem to know when I get lost in a painting. For example … when you started the “Dog’s Eye”, after you transferred the drawing to paper, you outlined in pale grey, so you wouldn’t get lost. That’s what happens to me! It was an “Ah-Ha” moment.

Loved it when you said "don’t worry about that … we will come back later and fix it … it looks a bit sloppy right now, but that’s ok." That helped me tremendously, because that was my problem! I would look at what I had done and give up. I lost the confidence I had when I started. Thank you for giving it back to me.

Thank you so much. I greatly appreciate your help! I feel refreshed again that I can do this!"

- Karen

"The online classes are taking me on such an exciting adventure and I feel her classes are also taking my work to another level.

The very first painting that I did, following her wonderful concise instructions allowed me to sit and smile at my finished painting.

Her work is outstanding and her classes ... well, I can't say enough good things about them.

Everything is explained so well and shown so clearly that I feel she's sitting right there next to me!

PLEASE, take the time and visit her online school where you can watch some of the step-by-step tutorials in real time."

Can I Sell or Exhibit my Painted Images from the Tutorials?

Should you find similar subjects, live or from photographs, you can use the techniques shown in the course to create an original piece for exhibition sale or reproduction. Following these guidelines should avoid any accusation of breach of copyright by the gallery or art exhibition curator.

It is advised that painters always credit Rebecca Rhodes when sharing any work derived from this site. See "Terms of Purchase" for more information.

"Just a quick note from the UK to thank you for the inspiration you have given me to keep on with watercolour painting. I have been painting for about 6 months now and I love the explanations given on the tutorials and I seem to be improving. I love your work and thanks again."

- Jan

"Just want to say that I have watched thru Part three of the Westie painting and it is extremely enjoyable and learning a great deal....I love the way you layered the eyes and your explanation and narration is very explicit and understanding of what you are doing....thank you....

Just finished watching you painting the Mongrel's ears...love watching you paint....I think it would be a great idea for you to move to NYC and open up the REBECCA RHODES SCHOOL OF ANIMAL PORTRAITS IN WATERCOLOR....and if you needed it which you probably wouldn't, I would gladly hand out flyers on the street corner."

-Marvin
