I really like this class and all the material presented delivered clearly. Informative, detailed explanations, beautiful exercises and projects- this class has it all! the instructor provides some practical advice espcially useful for beginners like me. Recommend this class to all watercolor enthusiast as its very engaging and has a lot of learning to take from. There is a lot of information other than just how to paint these which is shared continuously throughout the class. I would recommend this class for the beginners as well as intermediate.

One of the difficult subject in watercolours which I struggle is northern lights. When I got to the northern lights project, looking at my completed painting, I simply couldn't believe I painted it! every brush stroke is not explained, so I think it would help to have a bit of experience as opposed to absolute beginner. Northern lights is my favourite topic to paint but I always struggle to get them paint perfectly.
