“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf
As humans, we all have a natural desire to CREATE and there’s so much joy in that.
Let’s get back to our inner artist, shall we?
Have you ever heard people say...
“Practice makes perfect”
“Just work harder at it”
“You either have talent or you don’t”
OKAY REALLY THOUGH…
Who are these people that you’re listening to?
You used to love drawing and painting but now fall into the “I can’t draw” trap
Buy art supplies that you aren't sure how to use, so they end up collecting dust
Spend hours drawing, only to run out of space or have it totally off-center
Want to have a new creative hobby, but don't know where to start
Want to make side income doing something fun and creative!
Struggle with getting the correct proportions when drawing
Let me know if this sounds familiar...
I know how frustrating all this is because I've been there too!
For years I was a closet artist. I loved drawing and painting, but was too scared to show anyone my work. In fact, I created a secret blog where I posted my artwork, which eventually led to me to accidentally starting a creative business. More on this later, but first…
I need to get this off my chest.
I’m sick of hearing people apologize for being curious about their creativity.
Whenever I hear people say, “I’d love to have a creative hobby, but I’m not really an artist.”
This breaks my heart, because the truth is, EVERYONE has the ability to be creative.
YOU have an inner artist that is just dying to come out.
It’s time to let that part of you shine TODAY.
LISTEN, I SEE YOU.
• YOU’RE A LEFT-BRAINED PROFESSIONAL
Who is craving to dive into their creative side after your 9 to 5 shift.
• YOU’RE A JUGGLING MAMA
Who doesn’t have a lot of extra time outside of chasing after the kiddos. Self care? What’s that?
• YOU’RE A BUSY PERSON WITH PLACES TO GO
But you’re yearning for a creative outlet that is therapeutic and fun.
• YOU’RE A HOBBYIST WITH A DREAM
Who wants to improve their skills and maybe even make a side income doing what you love!
If you’re with me here, then I am SO excited to pass along my process-driven approach when it comes to painting.
… No confusing or abstract techniques
… No need to guess on how to get better
It is time to STOP redoing your sketch over and over again… Instead, I want you to be efficient with your precious time and see REAL results each time you paint.
ALL THE WHILE HAVING FUN IN THE PROCESS

HERE'S AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT YOU'LL GET
MODULE 0: INTRODUCTION + THE SFC METHOD
Before we dive into our art lessons, let’s go over your sketching tools and painting supplies!
You don’t have to buy a bunch of tools and try out different brands because I’ve done all that for you! I’ve been painting for 10+ years and professionally for 7+ years and trust me, the listed tools on my supply list are ALL that you need. Module 0 also includes drawing the figure using our SFC method, sketching worksheets, watercolor palette guide, and an invitation to our exclusive Facebook group!
MODULE 1: WATERCOLOR BASICS
Never played with watercolor before? No problem!
In this module, I’ll teach you how to best prep your palette, organize your colors and get you ready for painting. We’ll also go over how to paint skin tone! After painting thousands of people, trust me when I say that I’ve painted all types of skin tones. And now, I’ll teach you how to get every shade right so you feel confident painting people.
MODULE 2: FIGURE DRAWING
The sketch before the painting process can really make or break the final artwork, so let’s make sure we understand the figure.
We’ll cover everything from how to position the figure on our paper, differences between male and female figures as well as the proportions for adults, babies, and kids. We’ll also cover different articles of clothing and how to draw the outfit in a way that looks natural on the form. We’ll go over important details like drawing hands, feet, glasses and beards. This module alone is well worth the investment!
MODULE 3: WATERCOLOR PORTRAIT
Now that we have your sketch down, we’ll move onto my favorite part - adding watercolor!
In this module, we will go over skin tone in-depth and learn to add dimension to the body. We’ll also cover how to paint different types of hairstyles as well as facial hair. Finally, I’ll teach you how to paint different types of clothing, how to add natural folds/creases and add contrast so the painting pops out of the page!
BONUS: PAINTING WHITE CLOTHING
One of the questions I get asked the most is “How do you paint white clothing?”
Many portraits I paint are for weddings so I’ve learned all the tricks when it comes to painting white clothing on brides. In this bonus module, I’ll walk you step-by-step on how to paint a wedding dress and get all those impeccable details!
Plus you'll get free updates!
With your one time purchase, I’ve been adding new lessons such as…
Scanning + Digitizing your artwork
Sketching different face shapes
Drawing hands + feet
Painting blonde hair
Beards + Facial Hair

BUT WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE PRIOR DRAWING EXPERIENCE?
Don't worry, I got you!
I’ve taken what I’ve learned in years of art school and simplified the entire process.
Whether you are a brand new beginner or an experienced painter, you will take so much from this in-depth course! The best part is, you can learn at your own pace and in the comfort of your home.

Show me all the details!
We've got you covered.
Hi I’m Dianuh!
I began my creative business in 2013 and have since grown my team of artists under Chasing Linen. Each year, we paint thousands of people through custom watercolor portraits and live art events. We’ve been able to work with incredible companies like Google, Nordstrom, Alaska Airlines and more. It’s wild to think that I used to be a “closet artist” and now I have a multiple six-figure art business - say what?!
That’s my story in a nutshell and I share it with you because I want you to know what a huge impact art can have in your life. You don’t have to make a professional career out of it like I did (or you totally can) but pressing into your inner artist can unlock the massive creative potential you have inside of you.
After painting thousands of people through live art events and custom portrait projects, I’ve learned to simplify and streamline the process. I have a team of artists that I’ve trained and now, you can learn all my best tips & tricks on painting watercolor portraits.
I can’t wait to teach you everything I know inside the course.
