- 1Define your goal(s) for the session(s). Examples might include:
- Help with a specific painting you’re working on right now
- An overview of your work for general critique on where you are and where you want to go
- Personalized demos and real-time practice to learn something specific or as it applies to the work in progress
- Learning techniques that are specific to what you’d like to create
- 2Send over a link to your website if you have one, or JPEG images of your work, and the specific painting you’d like to work on.
- 3Send me images of work that inspires you (optional).
- 4Get yourself set up on Zoom on your desktop if you aren’t already. It's a free platform.
What to Expect During Your Session:
I’ll have studied both your body of work, the painting you want to work on and any inspiration you sent over.
I’ll share my screen with your image or images and guide you. We’ll look at the composition, color, line, shapes, what works, what might need more work – and of course all based on what you’re trying to do with the painting.
If you’d like a demo live, I’ll be in my studio and can show you pointers as they specifically relate to your work.
You’ll angle your device towards the painting you’re working on so I can see it and you can point to it.
You might just need a half hour, you might need an hour. That’s entirely up to you. If you book multiple sessions, you’re invited to send over process images for comment and questions in between.

What they're saying...
Barbara Bourne - Photographer
After 36 years as a professional photographer, I decided I needed to get back to my first love; painting. But, I needed a teacher. Fortunately, I was referred to a great one; Andrea Wedell. For the last year plus, I’ve been lucky enough to work with Andrea in her ‘One on One Mentorship’ program. Not only is Andrea an incredible artist, she is a generous, inspiring and brilliant teacher. I’ve learned so much about abstract painting, color and composition with her guidance and gained my confidence back. Andrea, I look forward to working with you again in person! Thanks for a great year of learning
J'ai eu plusieurs séances avec Andrea et j'ai adoré. J'apprécie particulièrement le fait qu'elle soit calée en beaux-arts et à la fois ouverte à l'exploration du style de l'autre. J'aime que l'on m'aide à voir mes écueils que ce soit liés à un problème technique, ou un blocage venant de moi. Andrea par nos échanges, me permet un et l'autre. Elle est généreuse de ses connaissances et honnête et respectueuse dans ses commentaires.
Je vais reprendre d'autres séances, je progresse significativement par le suite.
