    Great Downloadable Painting Pattern

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Sep 2016

    This is a beautiful old world Christmas scene and I fell in love with it. I bought this pattern to make for my daughter for Christmas (and myself later). Sue's instructions were clear and easy to understand and follow. With her great instructions and explanations I did a great painting for my daughter that I know she will love...thanks Sue!

    So glad I bought this!

    I am sooo glad I bought this pattern! It is absolutely beautiful, and the instructions are very clear. This is not the first pattern by Sue that I bought, and I barely keep myself from getting all of her patterns. It is a pleasure to follow and paint! Once you learn basic blending techniques, it gets easier to paint with each pattern! Practice makes perfect. Also, another thing that I particularly like about this school is that they taught me a lot of ways to fix mistakes, so I stopped worrying about making them. Helps a lot!
