The teacher is a master at watercolors, and it's great to see her process broken down into easy to follow steps! Her technique for stretching the paper mid-painting was very interesting as well.

Hello, 

My name is Shiho Arich, I'm a lover of nature and watercolors. As an adult I came back to my childhood love and started painting again, it has been an adventure to teach myself, with hours of learning and practice. In my classes, I would love to share as many things as I can, that I have learned to paint beautifully in watercolors. I would be very happy if it could make your painting time even more relaxing and fun.
