COMMENTS: I really enjoyed the DVD I purchased from you. I love the freshness and light of your art. As a newby watercolorist, I hope to include your generous and extremely helpful instruction into my art. With just a little practice, I've already seen an improvement in my watercolor art. I'm using a lighter touch, remembering to use interesting and various shapes, and mostly, simplifying. Again, thanks for a great DVD. I hope you produce more! Diana F.
The technical aspects of the DVD are very good. Your demeanor, the audio clarity, and the camera work that gave me a clear close-up view of the palette work, the application of paint to large shapes, and the detailed brushwork. Oh how I wish I'd seen this when I first started with watercolor years ago. I'd never seen ANYONE actually DOING a watercolor, much less someone as skilled as you. Mary E.
