        I ordered the DVD and I love it. Very clear instruction. Great video quality. All the projects plus a companion project for extra practice are included on printable files on the DVD, printable from your computer. Looking forward to painting all these projects. Shipping from Creative Catalyst was very quick.- Rhonda
        Last fall the DVD A Solid Start in Watercolor by Lynn Powers was used to instruct a beginners in watercolor workshop at our Art Center in Brownsville which I facilitated.  The 6 students in the class were enthusiastic about the techniques and concepts that were presented.  Several said that they had taken other watercolor classes but none of those classes taught the strategies that were included in this video.  Also the sections for each painting were paced well.  As instructor I did an example of each the paintings for reference and also to anticipate issues the students might encounter.
