Thanks for inspiring us and leading us to make our beautiful crab watercolor paintings! i wish we could have seen how the paint was being applied throughout the entire piece. I do hope melissa does more tutorials with that in mind in the future as I did enjoy her teaching style!

I would like the video to be improved to show more of the actual painting instead of the reference photo, the bottom of the painting was chopped off . Unfortunately, melissa was not painting in the video frame during the first 2 portions of painting, so it was not possible to visually follow what she was doing. I would like to have seen a reference photo provided with the class.
