Dawn Whitelaw is going to help you advance your skills in a way that works for you! Soon, you’ll be moving from where you are now to where you want to be … without getting distracted, sidetracked, or tripped up.

If you’ve never seen Dawn Whitelaw’s work, you’re in for an incredible experience because in Sketchscapes: From Study to Studio, Dawn is going to show you exactly how to take what really interests you about a subject and turn it into a painting that reflects your own passion, your own story, and your own style.

Dawn brings you her 50 years of experience as an art mentor, workshop leader, and professional artist. She’s very generous at teaching many different learning styles so you can define yourself and evolve in your own way. 

Her instruction is clear and concise, and you’ll immediately trust that “she’s been there, done that” and is just the right person to help you learn, grow, and truly feel like you’re making genuine progress.

Dawn is a master of landscapes and portraits, plein air and studio ... so whatever it is you prefer, she’s got you covered!

Right at the start, Dawn will show you an exercise to get your creative juices flowing and then how to turn those ideas into an action plan. Suddenly, you’ll have an “aha” moment — the light will go on as you figure out something you probably didn't even know you needed.

Next, you’ll see her expert methods for creating your preliminary studies. You might be a little surprised, and delighted, to see how she does these “sketchscapes” and the value they’ll bring to your finished paintings!

After some great information and instruction, Dawn puts it all to work in a full painting demonstration — a studio painting done from her plein air study.

From showing you her signature limited four-color palette all the way to the final “untouches” of the painting (just wait until you see this!). 

Because of decades of teaching, she shares every step and decision and how you can put the techniques to use in your own work. She wants you to find your own voice!

This is exactly where you need to be for your confidence to soar — you’ll be more satisfied with your paintings, and you’ll be eager to show them off, enter them into competitions, and even to sell them.
