Painting a second Damselfly into our alcohol ink painting.  You can paint as many into your piece or art as you want and use the colors you love.  


Learn about a few different display options for your Alcohol Ink Tiles. 

Ink Display Options

Sealing your inks is important for longer life of your art.  I will go over how I seal my own art to protect them for many years of viewing.

In this section I show how to professionally frame a watercolor painting. You can do the same process with your Alcohol Ink paintings once they have been sealed. Just make sure your painting does not touch the glass, usually your mat will be deep enough to keep the painting from touching the glass.

Here are some recent reviews from  ART STUDENTS:


I have been a Bob Ross certified instructor for 26 years and I have taught in various venues. Kelly is very clear in her instructions and she makes it easy to follow what she is doing. The class is simple enough for beginners and yet she gives the student plenty of room for creating a little on their own. The instruction on the supplies was also clear and easy to follow.

~Cherly M.

★★★★★ "ENJOYED"

"I enjoyed doing this this painting. I am new to watercolor. Was able to follow, having to go back occasionally. Will probably do this painting several times just for the practice. I contacted the Kellie Chasse sight because of interest in alcohol oil painting. So will be an active student for awhile to come. Thank you for a great beginning!!"  

~Kathleen F.

★★★★★ "BIG HELP"

"Because everything was explained so simply, and Kellie's painting in real time was a very big help. I intend to take more of her courses in the future."
