I just received your DVD and it was love at first sight. The painting is stunning! It has such vibrancy and luscious colour. You explained more ways to use pastel than I could ever imagine. You are a natural teacher. I'm going to watch this DVD again and again and incorporate your ideas into my own painting. I've already made some of my own pastel paper just like you showed us. What fun!! All this and 2 complete demos, all I can say is excellent! Thank you Trudy F.
