Tutorials for Painters

8 Great Painting Tutorials on YouTube

If you are just starting out in the art world or have been painting for a while but need some tips, there are literally thousands of  painting tutorials available on line. 

Tutorials are available on every genre and style. These range from the very new beginner to the advanced artist. 

There are many web sites with written tutorials and instructions, but I am  a visual learner so I prefer watching video  on YouTube. 

Below is a list of my favorite painting tutorials. There are several different styles included. I hope you find something that inspires you.

My Favorite Tutorials

Lachri Fine Art: Lisa is one of my favorite artists. Her work is beautifully detailed and she is very knowledgeable about all things art related. 

She works in acrylic, oils, colored pencil as well as other mediums. Her tutorials are very informative and always entertaining.  She also does a live tutorial on most Wednesday nights.

The Art Sherpa:  Acrylic painting tutorials for beginning artists. The Art Sherpa has live acrylic paint along sessions featuring landscapes, fan art, fantasy and many more.  Great for the beginning artist.

The Frugal Crafter: Lindsay Weirich is the Frugal Crafter.  She does a little bit of everything but I especially love her watercolor paint along. 

She is full of energy and does a lot of real-time tutorials on everything from card making, stamping, painting with markers to oils, acrylics, and watercolors.

Angela Anderson:  This channel has beautiful acrylic tutorials for both the beginner and more advanced artist. Her pleasant voice and easy going manner make her a pleasure to watch.

  1. I like Surajfinearts. His YouTube videos (all abstract) match my painting style, and never fail to inspire me.

  2. I am fairly new to acrylic painting so I have been using Utube tutorials to help with learning the craft. I recognized a few of the names you have recommended and will check out a couple of the ones I did not know. I have really learned a great deal from ColorbyFeliks UTube tutorials. I find his blending and color mixing techniques especially helpful. Thank you for your recommendations.

  3. Hello,
    I am Raj Maji, an Artist, working with acrylic painting and making video tutorials (with minor detailing) to share my painting technique which includes the knowledge I have gathered in the past two decades. I was going through your site and liked your taste very much. So at the same time I thought of sharing the links of some of my tutorials. Please have a look if it matches the kind of tutorials you are looking for. Have a great day ahead.


    Thanks and Regards,
    Raj Maji
