Progress efficiently, become a recognized artist and sell your paintings better!
Course on dry pastel, acrylic and oil painting.
Explanations and technical advice from beginner to advanced level.

This site is a platform for art technique video courses. The videos are exclusively available online, only on this site.

The taught techniques include:
• Dry pastel courses
• Acrylic painting courses
• Oil painting courses
• Drawing courses
• … and other related subjects

It is intended for beginners, enthusiasts, art students, or professionals looking to improve their technical skills with the goal of creating higher-quality paintings, gaining confidence, attracting more clients, selling better and at higher prices, and earning recognition at art exhibitions, among other aspirations.

I received numerous requests to create these courses because individuals were struggling to find pastel or painting lessons at their level and in French.

Therefore, I developed courses that I would have liked to find several years ago, which would have saved me years of experience. With my pastel, acrylic, and oil painting courses, you will receive pedagogical explanations and technical advice to help you succeed in your artwork!

Invest in yourself, and you’ll go far.

“Learning ‘the hard way’ involves making a lot of mistakes, losing money, resources, and time…

Many people have asked me to create courses! The challenge was significant for me, but today I offer courses that I would have liked to find years ago, saving me a lot of time!

I have been giving private lessons since 2017. 

The core of my courses is based on intuitive pedagogy and understanding theoretical, technical, physical, and scientific concepts.

Even though the journey may be more or less challenging depending on your natural abilities, I’ve seen that all the students I’ve had in private lessons made significant technical progress after just 10 hours of training…
Of course, video courses are not like private lessons, but I try to show you my techniques as much as possible.”


Yes, to make the courses accessible to as many motivated individuals as possible, you have the option to pay in 3 installments. To do this, choose the KLARNA payment solution.

Payment in installments is capped at a maximum of 3 months (and up to €1500): “For regulatory reasons, if the repayment period exceeds 90 days, the installment plan becomes a full-fledged consumer credit.” It is the payment organization that advances the money for you and collects it by debiting your account for the next two months.

For coaching or master classes, if the total amount exceeds €1500 (Klarna’s limit for 3-month payments), we can discuss setting up automatic transfers each month over several months. However, in this case, with absolutely no guarantee, the course will only be accessible once the total amount is paid.

Keep an eye on my newsletters so you don’t miss announcements of temporary launch offers on the new courses!

Regardless of the field, indeed, there are paid courses and free content…

But is the quality equivalent? I believe you already have the answer…

Free content: • You’ll waste time searching. • You’ll learn bit by bit without a coherent progression. • You’ll find videos that repeat the same things, or conversely, you’ll have gaps in certain areas. • The output is not always of high quality. • Some videos at a medium/intermediate level provide advice considered unwise (or outright errors) at an advanced level… • On average, 90% to 95% of free content is not useful…

In any field, a real structured course or a comprehensive high-level training that requires weeks or months of work cannot be free…

There are people who don’t want to invest in themselves, and they won’t be able to progress faster than what their natural abilities allow. And there are people who know that when you want to go far, the best investment is to invest in yourself and learn from someone experienced… So, what are your ambitions?

If you’re a professional and have the opportunity to progress but don’t want to pay, consider that others, among your competition, will…

For those who want to go far but have modest budgets: You have the option to pay in installments and not miss out on the opportunity.

 Yes and no… Let’s detail:

From a purely legal standpoint, no! Because there is copyright law! And this applies to all courses and more broadly to all photos (unless stated otherwise) and paintings you find on the internet…

I choose copyright-free photos or take them myself so that you can use and share them on social networks.

Important reminder: a photo found on the internet IS NOT copyright-free (unless explicitly stated otherwise), so you do not have the right to share your copy on the internet or social media… Any form of distribution is prohibited, as your copy is illegal. Technically, you only have the right to keep your copy strictly for personal use without any distribution.

But with a copyright-free photo, you can draw and share… BUT!

It’s a painting created from a tutorial, so it is NOT an entirely original work imagined, thought out, designed, and executed by yourself…

So, you can display it, but on the back of the painting, there must be the mention “Copy made from a tutorial by Skyzune ART Academy…” Otherwise, it will be considered an illegal copy of my original painting, and if the exhibition or buyer learns that it is not an original, they may take legal action against you… And believe me, for having come across a copy of one of my paintings in an improbable place, the world is really small!! And it’s even worse with the internet and followers who follow multiple artists at the same time!

Warning: the majority of art fairs and official exhibitions with prize awards strictly refuse copies and paintings derived from tutorials! (And that’s quite logical)

Any real (exhibitions, magazines…) or virtual (website, social media…) distribution must be accompanied by the mention “after a painting by” and the original artist.

Similarly, legally, you cannot sell copies or derivative products of the painting for which you are not the sole author. (unless you have negotiated this in writing with the original artist)

Can I resell my course to a third party?

Obviously not! When you purchase a course or training, you’re only buying access! In no case do you become the author or owner of it. Only the creator of the courses has the right to sell them.

Any sharing of an account with a third party (outside of the family sphere), resale of an account, or any other fraud, will result in the user account and the associated bank account being permanently blocked!!! Thank you for respecting the investment and work of the artist…

Very logically, no, and even on a legal basis: Video courses are immediately accessible upon payment validation, so no purchased course can be refunded.

For all artists:

Beginners who have never practiced
Amateurs looking to enjoy themselves
Semi-professionals aiming to develop their artistic activities
Art students preparing for a diploma
Professionals wanting to further improve to sell better and at higher prices.

In my courses, I explain the process from start to finish. However, some topics will be more accessible than others. Even though they are doable, it will be easier with a bit more experience to achieve truly satisfying results.

On a complete painting, there are several challenges at once: different textures, colors, play of light… And if you don’t have a minimum mastery of them individually, you’ll struggle and get discouraged.

So, just like in music where you work on each technical exercise independently before tackling an entire concerto, I’ve designed ‘master classes’ (or in progress, depending on the date) that explain everything from A to Z! These are courses that encompass everything you need to know, from basic technical exercises to advanced tutorials, to reach a level sufficient to approach a tutorial with a complete painting.

Learn, Understand, Apply, Progress…

“There’s no realistic answer to this question. And I’m not misleading you with aggressive marketing like ‘Achieve a professional level in just 3 weeks’…

Progress will depend on:
– Your current level of skill
– Your ability to observe, concentrate, and analyze
How much time you dedicate to the course. If you spread it over 6 months, you may have already forgotten the initial tips, and you might not be fully engaged anymore!
– It also depends a bit on the materials. Poor-quality pastel paper, brushes, or low-grade paints won’t help. However, keep in mind that a professional artist could still produce great results with subpar materials, even if it limits them. Don’t blame the materials too quickly. 😉

– And I think the most important factor:
The number of courses you take!!! No secret, in any discipline (I also do horseback riding and play the violin, so I know what I’m talking about), the more you practice in class with a teacher, the more you progress!!

So, some diligent individuals attending my courses will progress quickly. But I understand that others may have more significant life constraints and will progress at their own pace…”

No, but you have plenty of time to complete the courses. For most of them, they are available for 1 year, and for the master classes, 2 years. After this period, it allows me to remove certain courses to replace them with others, as they become too old or technically obsolete (software, social media, for example)

Yes, of course. Although I recommend, if possible, not to leave too much time between each drawing session to avoid forgetting the initial tips from the video and not being too ‘disconnected’ from what you have already done. Otherwise, there are (or will soon be) tutorials on ‘texture exercises’ that are much shorter and allow you to learn to master each texture before diving into a large painting.

“I don’t like taking classes with a teacher who imposes their vision, I prefer to do things my way.” … Regardless of the discipline, I completely agree! In my courses, I show you how I do things and provide advice based on my years of experience. This will save you time, and you can follow them to achieve a result close to mine or do it your own way. I demonstrate, I don’t impose anything; in any case, you will evolve on your ow

It’s a persistent prejudice…

What you really need is the desire to start! No need for ‘talent’… In any discipline, when you start, you always begin from zero, and then the difference will be in how you approach it: if you are diligent, attentive, observant, hardworking, thoughtful, you will undoubtedly progress faster and further than someone who takes the courses without seeking to DO BETTER AND IMPROVE…

An artist, musician, or athlete who starts and thinks they have ‘no talent’ but trains regularly: after 1000 hours, do you think they will have the same level as at the beginning?

Clearly not! And don’t forget, all virtuosos started from scratch first… 😉

The important thing is to start and have the desire to always go further!

If you’re a beginner or amateur and afraid of not finishing the courses, in general, you may have less patience due to less practice than a pro, and that’s normal. The video format of the courses allows you to go at your own pace, so take breaks to avoid rushing and stay focused…

You will have or have access to packs of exercises on a specific theme. With these quick exercises, you avoid diving into a format that mixes too many textures and colors that you haven’t mastered yet! This way, you can quickly move from one exercise to another, progressing rapidly without getting demotivated!




A little reminder ;):

  • You can pay for the courses in installments
  • Sell the painting derived from my courses

“Ha, okay, we don’t realize all that it implies to do this,” someone has told me before…
Even though technically the prices don’t have to be justified, for those who wish to understand, it seems important to explain the technical and administrative constraints that apply:

What needs to be subtracted from the selling price or to amortize the purchase:

  • • Taxes on digital products, depending on the country, up to 27%
  • • URSAFF (17.35%) (in France, it includes several contributions for health, retirement, etc.)
  • • TAXES (depends…)
  • • Investment in equipment (4K/8K cameras, lenses, multiple batteries, professional memory card, microphone, powerful computer for processing heavy videos, hard drives for storage of very large files, lighting…)
  • • Website design: paying the developer (even if I did the vast majority of the site, some technical processes are too complex for me)
  • • Purchases related to the site (subscription for hosting, site theme, and several plugins)
  • • Purchase of professional editing software
  • • Secure hosting of videos (depending on the number of videos and their size)
  • • Subscription to email marketing software
  • • The percentage of commission from the online payment solution.
  • • Training and books
  • • Other (electricity consumed by computers, etc…)


  • Work time: several months without income on this project that needs to be recovered…
  • Experience and hard-earned skills also have value.

And there will likely also be the cost of communication and advertising because without communication, no customers!! (and we can no longer rely on social networks now…)

Then the rate is adapted based on the course subject, the time it takes to create the videos, and several criteria…”

There are many techniques!
It’s a matter of personality; some people will like one technique and not another…

But you need to be pragmatic: if you only have a few minutes per day, choose a technique that is immediately usable and requires no cleaning!
In this case, I would recommend pastels: you can pick them up and put them down whenever you want… To start an artistic technique when you’ve never tried anything, I think pastels are really suitable.

For other criteria:
Time, as we’ve seen

  • Allergies and intolerance (pastel dust, harmful paint)
  • Environment (room size, ventilation)
  • Storage capacity: storing pastel paintings takes up less space than painted canvases, or worse, sculptures…
  • Your patience! Do you want to do and finish in one go, or can you wait between layers of oil paint?
  • Your budget: some techniques are more expensive than others, for example, a sheet of Pastelmat will cost much less than the same size linen canvas mounted on a wooden frame…
  • Your desires: but if you have real technical constraints, I do not advise putting your desires before them.

Don’t create a large oil painting with toxic solvents if you live in a small, poorly ventilated studio… Even if you really want to, you need to use common sense and be logical (or find a studio near you to practice) 😉


All my lessons are recorded! So, you can take breaks, go at your own pace, go back to a concept, and even redo the lesso !

In general, on-site workshops are beneficial for progress and have advantages, but:

  • They require being available for several consecutive days.
  • Often conducted in groups, so you’re also paying for venue rental.
  • You’re obliged to follow the group’s level and pace.

The advantage of online courses:

  • Progress at your own pace
  • No travel and venue rental costs
  • Choose based on your interests and skill level
  • Repeat lessons as many times as you want
  • Learn comfortably in your own environment

To successfully follow a recipe, you need a minimum of ingredients! The required materials are listed in the course descriptions. For colors, I recommend having a reasonably comfortable range of choices to work with subtlety.

If you need to buy materials, especially for paints and brushes: I understand that budget matters, but without necessarily opting for the highest-end equipment, I strongly advise against low-end materials: you won’t be able to achieve what you want, and it will be wasted money! Start with mid-range materials

Yes, of course! The goal of my courses is not to have you fill in numbered boxes where you must put the right color on the right number!! You would be unable to recreate it yourself or do something else…

You can achieve nearly identical or very similar results with other choices. My goal is to help you understand how the material and colors work so that you can achieve the result you want on your own

Your internet speed is probably not powerful enough to support 4K video, so at the bottom of the videos, you can choose to switch to 2K or 1080 quality

I advise against viewing on a smartphone. At least the size of a (good) tablet. But the most important thing is to have a quality screen (if possible, calibrated) because many screens have colors that are too saturated, with too much or too little contrast, or with a cinema colorimetry that is too blue…

For the sake of sharing and copyright protection, it is evident that no, you cannot

Are the courses suitable for deaf or hard of hearing individuals?
