Would like to be able to print the finished product as a reference and it sheds light on how to achieve this complex beauty of nature. Super interesting and exciting techniques, like it is always with melinda´s classes!! there’s a whole lot of magic going on in this painting process so much love for this class and all of melinda’s classes. With all the lovely splattering, this painting lends itself nicely to painting outdoors.

When melinda zoomed in on painting in last segment, I couldn’t see the bottom couple of inches as they were under the audio ruler. (Heard the machine broke, and now they only make the fine mist kind?) regarding the holbein artist spray bottles - do you know if it's possible to get the "dot" kind again anywhere? not sure if this version is true, but the dot bottles have been elusive here in the us for probably about 2-3 years now.
