Deal Score+7

What you’ll learn

  • The process of art as taught by an accomplished gallery shown artist
  • How to create digital tools like vector brushes from actual physical objects like brushes and live canvas

  • How to balance the 3 dynamics of abstract art: dynamics of color, flow and balance


  • Affinity Designer for either desktop or ipad ( it is taught in desktop)


In the world of digital we know pixels….and we know vector, but what about the physical look you get taking acrylic paints and sweeping around the canvas freely without having to worry about nodes and strokes, and for that matter what about the canvas… can we duplicate that look to take our digital art to the next level ?

What if you could blend the organic feeling of natural materials with the convenience and portability of digital….we got you covered. PLUS we have teamed up with a successful gallery artist to teach you HIS methods for creation in the physical world PLUS I will be adapting and showing you using Affinity Designer how to do this in the real world as well.

  • Use physical materials to create brush sets and canvas’ that look and act like those in the real world

  • Balance dynamics of pattern and stroke along with color to create stunning and complex art pieces

We packed a fun and information filled session with Bryson Bost creating a piece for an upcoming show into a course and then showed you how to do everything he is doing in Affinity Designer. From creating canvas textures to the stroke brush packs and even showing you how to do a bronze pen …….we got it all. From start to finish with 2 heavyweight artists for you to learn from and reach out to

This course is a hands on approach where you CAN take your physical materials and we show you how to move them into your digital world…..or if you do not physically want to make your material….then we show you and give you access to ours ALREADY made for you

We teach you not only the technical side, but Bryson takes you inside hiw creative process and shows you how to develop DYNAMICS, use his DOT SYSTEM, and be free with color and pattern to lead the eye through a complex piece of art.

In this course we teach you to harmonize your physical art with your digital at and step OUTSIDE of what you know and get uncomfortable working in a new and free way…..totally unlike what we traditionally do with vector
