"I've already watched your fantastic DVD 3 times. Your approach to watercolour is wonderful. I just love your calm way of teaching. I've taken lots of classes and I learned more from this DVD than any class. I feel a new confidence that I can paint my own watercolour. To be able to see so clearly how you paint clouds, trees and mountains is unbelievable. It was fascinating to hear you explain why you were doing things every step of the way. Everyone who wants to learn watercolour needs to see this DVD. Great Work!!" - Elsie M.

"I want to commend you on your Watercolour Workshop, Old Man River. As a Christmas gift last year, I asked my daughter, who lives in Calgary, to give it to me as a gift. I had seen a copy earlier, and felt I must have it in my collection."
