‘I sold my peony painting for $1450!’ 

Kim Hrovat, Gold Coast, with her first large Blooms painting which she sold herself within six weeks of the workshop.


Two Masterpieces in a week from scratch!

“I was able to see this beautiful creation emerging from my canvas. My confidence soared. Jacqueline supplied everything, the easels, canvas, brushes, acrylics and medium and knowledge. You name it we had it in our grasp.

Jacqueline was the most generous of teachers with her excellent tutoring. The most unselfish thing an artist can do is to pass on to other artists all of the knowledge that has taken her a lifetime to amass. Jacqueline is a no nonsense teacher and we had enormous fun.

The outcome of the course was two complete paintings and I can say that my art was exceptional under her tutelage. My friends have been totally astounded at the quality of my art and both pieces hang proudly on my wall at home. Jacqueline showed us how to make the ordinary extraordinary.”


Marion Dall, Bunbury, WA

You don’t need a fine arts degree to have permission to paint and sell your work.





Meet the student who sold her first painting before the end of the workshop!


Barbara Doogan of Monbulk, Victoria was nervous about colour mixing. She needn’t have worried. She pulled off two great paintings, including this one left,  which was sold for $1,000 before the end of the painting workshop!







Just wanted to let you know we are all still talking about the wonderful workshop and how we are all still on a ‘high’.  Most of us have done another painting or are finishing one.  It was very inspiring being with you for a week.

I had an amazing experience the other morning, light was just coming into my bedroom and my damask curtains just showed all the tonal shades, I have never noticed that before.

You did tell us we would see things differently now!  I knew exactly how I would paint it – in fact it would be a good exercise for me to do.  Thank you for teaching me another way to look at things.


Kindest regards Jacqueline Smith, Melbourne

What if I were to teach you a no fail hand held experience of painting so you can enjoy successful results EVERY SINGLE TIME & sell them for great money?!

Dear reader,


I wasn’t always an artist. Just 12 short years ago I was an advertising art director cramming in study at uni to learn to paint.


The key to my success wasn’t natural artistic talent at all.




When I started out I was so nervous. I always thought there were others so much better than me. I never felt like a ‘born artist’! When I look back I realise my biggest asset was simply a wonderful desire to paint, as that was the key to put one step in front of the other towards my creative goals and have a go.


I soon realised that painting could be learned. There was nothing to be afraid of. Everyone does it differently and we can all express ourselves in our own way. I am so thankful I listened to that loving part of myself that urged me to give it a try. I desperately wanted to paint and I did.


I now have a lifestyle full of art, inspiration and great students. Twelve years ago I couldn’t have imagined it!


My work place is my painting studio and gallery at Salon Rouge, on the edge of the Barossa Valley with the sounds of the birds, peace and tranquillity, and the fragrance of blossoms. Being self-employed I fit my work around the kids. But it wasn’t always this way.


Whilst working in a full time job, I felt creatively frustrated so I studied and eventually finished a full time degree course at the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales as a mature age student, fitting this in with a work time.


I attended workshops, and I went to at least 5 exhibition openings in Sydney a week to see bodies of work by emerging and established artists, I painted in all my spare time, read art books and for holidays jumped on a plane to cultural centres such as Paris, New York and London to absorb the best they had, scour the art museums, the art supply shops, & the parks and gardens.


My education to become a painter took over 8 years.


I worked for free to get experience in top Sydney art galleries, spent all my spare income on art materials and rented a small studio in a warehouse where I spent after business hours painting. I dragged bunches of exquisite sunflowers home and painted them in oils with my fingers.


During this time of change I had a powerful dream that would change my life and give me  courage to cut ties with an old life and leap into the new. Though scared as hell, I trusted it would work out. Remember I had no painting and marketing mentor holding my hand. I had to work it out for myself. Perhaps you’ve been in a position before where you don’t know all the answers but you decide to do something anyway. That’s where I was.




In my dream I found myself standing inside a deep red rose that was like a big dark velvety auditorium. A diva with a magnificent bust wrapped in crimson red silk threw out an arm and let forth the most wonderful vibrato at the top of her lungs that took hold of my whole being in the most sublime way.

I then was transported to a scene where I was the observer watching myself paint the most exquisite and ginormous canvas with a deep dark red glowing rose.

I woke up motivated to work out how to paint these uplifting blooms. Over the years, despite my university painting requirements, I kept returning to the blooms as subject matter.




Don’t worry, when I started out painting, I had loads of concerns including;


  • But I can’t draw
  • I’m totally inexperienced. Can I really become an artist?
  • I have trouble handling the paint
  • Colour mixing wheels bamboozle me
  • People will laugh at my work.
  • It’s embarrassing to declare myself an artist even though I feel like one inside
  • what if I couldn’t solve a problem myself
  • how can I have this in my life and how can I support myself financially?
  • how will I fit it all in? I’m already so busy.,
  • How will I know when the painting is finished?
  • Will anyone actually be interested in what I do?

If there were mistakes to be made I made them. Until I devised a simple system with 7 easy steps that meant my paintings progressed logically and assuredly to beautiful blooms paintings every time so I could paint the incredible flowers in my dreams.


I decided the best way to control the outcome of the painting was to paint from a photo. So I took lots of photos of red roses until I found the ONE that felt perfect like my dream.


From the get go my paintings with my Blooms Painting Method™ were in demand in a way none of the previous paintings had been. I had people wanting to buy them before the paint had dried!


Later on I found myself pregnant with my second child knowing I would need to prepare for life as a single parent. This brought new concerns such as;


  • Can I support myself and my family as an artist? 
  • I have one child and another on the way, with no support. Can I afford to paint let alone afford child care? How will I paint with two small children? 


Confessions of a newbie artist!


My life script went AWOL so I decided to take a leap of faith. I had bought an old dilapidated stone barn in the Barossa Valley. I wanted to be with my children and paint from home.

My brother came up with designs for the barn and I found a good builder who could renovate it in Kapunda. Before I left my job and my life in Sydney, I painted up an exhibition of beautiful Blooms paintings whilst pregnant with my second child Lily, & wrote my own PR.


Imagine my surprise when several magazines published the dates of the exhibition and pictures of my work! It suddenly looked real and important splashed across the media.

As I was having my exhibition and inviting more and more people to the opening night, I knew  I had crossed my biggest hurdle- giving myself permission to be an artist and letting everyone know about it, no matter what they might think of me.

Of course it all felt like new territory. I felt terribly audacious and in the weeks leading to the event like someone might tap me on the shoulder and stop me!  But no-one stopped me, and the opening night was a packed to full capacity with the crowd spilling onto the street. The fear evaporated and I was experiencing the joy of being an exhibiting artist!


Left: Painting in my Sydney painting studio in Rozelle, involved juggling my son Hannibal on my hip at the same time. I was also pregnant with my second child on her way!


Nearly everyone I had invited came to see my 27 paintings. Friends and family helped pour wine, offer food, and place red dots next to my paintings which meant they had sold. What a relief to see the red dots! I had spent my last dollars on the alcohol for the opening!


The show sold over half, about $18,000 worth plus I left Sydney with $15,000 of commissions to paint providing me with an income. It felt wonderful to have an abundant new form of income I could do from home from doing what I loved.


Not long after as a mother to two children under two, living in my stone barn in the Barossa renovated to a home and studio, I was asked by a Barossa florist, Viva The Flower Store, to teach my blooms paintings to the local women. These were the business women and ladies of leisure of the Barossa so I had to perform. My reputation was at stake!


My first time teaching others to paint the Blooms way.


I had never taught before. They had never painted! I thought, I can’t let my students go through what I did. I am going to come up with a compassionate kind method that delivers incredible results. If I don’t I’m history! So I took my Blooms method and applied it to this group of 12 trusting and eager women who most certainly couldn’t draw or paint but looking to me for the answers. I didn’t want to spoil their day. I was NERVOUS! I decided to start with roses.


By the end of the day I had a group of very happy customers. Step by step, their beautiful blooms paintings unfolded before our eyes. The Blooms Painting Method™ ensures no one goes missing in action. ( I have now trademarked my Blooms Painting Method which is so exciting.)


You don’t have to be able to draw with my techniques.  Although the entire group painted the flowers, with the same method, the extraordinary thing was, the paintings all looked different.


We all have our own hand writing, and whether we know it or not, our own personal style comes through from the way we see things, our preferences, and our sense of touch on the canvas.


I later expanded on this workshop and taught it in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Moree, Grafton,Young, Kapunda, Adelaide, Elliston and even taught in Wellington , New Zealand.





“From beginner to budding artist- great full on day.

Good bye office  – Hello Art Studio”


Marian, Wellington , New Zealand.


“Fantastic day! Your support and encouragement are priceless

forming a very supportive environment which allows us to let the

creative person inside to come out. Thank you.”


Barbara Laurenson, Wellington, New Zealand.

What if your painting efforts result in beautiful artwork you can sell straight away?

I went on to teach other blooms and large canvas workshops always with successful results for everybody with my simple and compassionate technique, always growing and improving the teaching offer, trying it and testing it out on literally hundreds and hundreds of customers.


A person of no previous art experience was able to walk away with several masterpieces and their eyebrows rearranged in an expression of amazement at what was possible!


If you think this sounds different to any other workshop you’ve heard about before, you are right.


Sadly, hundreds of students exit art college and uni every year creating unsaleable artwork. They depend on a commercial gallery system to support them. Tricky when the gallery commission is as high as 45% plus expenses. This is a no win situation keeping artists poor. It also excludes many artists from displaying their work

Going to university is a privilege but not everyone  has the time or money to indulge themselves in this way without making a living at the end of it. The professors are great but they are not making income solely from their art. They are on wages. Ask yourself… Are they the best people to teach you how to forge a path as an artist?



Painting the Blooms way! So easy a 12 year old can do it!

Why painting feels like falling in love and brings such joy

When we paint we connect with a part of the brain that gives us the same signals as for when we fall in love. As we become immersed in the colour and enter into another world, the real world drops away as we create, enter calmness, and get in the flow. The body triggers similar feelings of euphoria as when you fall in love.

You get to feel your highest most enjoyable emotions when you paint. Not to mention the great feeling you get from producing something beautiful. It is so satisfying! Decide how you want to feel. Transform your world with painting!


Wake up to the best job in the entire world!


As an artist you get to inspire others, and provide a window onto another world they don’t know about. It makes them feel good.


Make a difference to this world!


The cool thing is, you don’t have to be born an artist, or have gone to art college. You can decide right now for yourself and start being an artist today. Express yourself straight away! Why wait?!

Learn from my experience.

  • No need to make costly defeating mistakes.
  • Save yourself time and money getting it direct from a practising expert on the subject matter who knows their stuff!
  • When you are doing something you truly love your energy increases and attracts people to it.
  • Why wait? Discover your joy!

Here’s what you get in your Jacqueline Coates Blooms 1 & 2 Painting Workshop;


The Jacqueline Coates Blooms Painting Method ™.

Seven simple steps that  ANYONE can do.


If you can count to 7 you can apply my Blooms Painting Method™.


1. ‘I don’t know what to paint.’ Perfect, because I supply you with brilliant choices every month in the form of exquisite colour photo reference. All you have to do is choose what you like best and I provide step by step instructions on how to proceed from woo to go.

I also show you how to shoot your own photo reference to you can paint from a photo that will guarantee your success on the canvas. While you are creating your pool of shots choose from my shots which are worth of thousands of dollars when painted up. I set you up for success!


2. ‘Can’t  draw to save yourself?’ I have two easy peasy ways of getting a proportionate image quickly and easily onto the canvas. You’ll never have to have a concern with your drawing skills again. The funny thing is that after a while you will be able to draw as unconsciously you are training your eye to see with my method. Anyone can do this. No need to be born with a creative bone in your body or have attended any previous art classes of any kind. No previous experience necessary.

3. ‘I don’t know how and where to start!’ Great! My Blooms Painting Method ™ means you get to preview you painting before you paint it. You will always know where you are going and what you are creating. No uncertainty here. You’ll love the Blooms Underpainting stage. With my Blooms Method™ I show you how to create a tonal map before you get into the colour. This gives you a chance to sort out all your shapes before thinking about the next stage. We break it into bite size chunks with a place to start and a place to finish.



4. ‘I am confused about colour?’

Brilliant, because I show you a devastatingly effective Blooms speed colour exercise that puts you in control of your colour palette from the get go.

Learn what the paint companies don’t want you to know! This simple exercise will also save you hundreds of dollars as you will know how to mix those gorgeous colours instead of having to buy them all individually. Live off five tubes of colour if you wish.





5. ‘What do I do next?’

After the Blooms tonal underpainting you will paint with your colour. The painting starts coming into being and it is very exciting to see the progress with every stroke of paint that goes onto the canvas.





6. I’m not sure how to finish or when to finish a painting. Then you’ll love my 7 steps to finessing your Blooms painting that will make your painting look professional. From cleaning up edges to checking the depth of the tones and colour correcting, this is where it all comes together!

7. Finishing touches.

Nothing like an oil glaze to put the finishing touch on your masterpiece. I show you how to have your painting look professional.
