    Excellent quality

    Posted by Margo M. on 6th Feb 2015

    This is an excellent class with many hours of video instructions backed up by a LOT of pages of written explanations and pictures. I can tell that the teachers put an unbelievable amount of work in this material, so I really appreciate and admire that! It is impossible not to succeed having that much material. My personal recommendation would be to watch and read everything before you begin painting. Makes the whole process a whole lot easier compared to rewinding while actually painting a piece (although I do that too). You are going to love this class! I am painting the blueberry now, and absolutely love the process! Having somebody to actually evaluate your work is a huge bonus too!

    I have only looked at this one yet I can't wait to do it. An in depth class that covered everything you need to do so that you can go out there and create your own art once you've finished.

    Very enjoyable

    Posted by Kim on 1st Jul 2012

    I have now complete 2 out of the 3 paintings along with the initial color schemes videos. I am able to better understand blending and truly like the way my lemon has turned out. The color schemes are taught in a way that is easy to understand. Each painting can be done in a day or two. The learning process through these classes is very enjoyable!
