Videos are superb and wonderful. But sorry to say, I was unable to watch monitor for long because of flicker. I need to take break after every video.
I love learning the new skills in this workshop which gave me the confidence to apply colours to my watercolour painting and using pencil over the top of my watercolour illustration. Thanks Nina, just fabulous!
