If you need a quick overview on the general idea of watercolor then I would recommend this lesson. I was hoping for a more in-depth discussion on watercolour basics, since I'm a beginner, but I think this class is best for those who want to dive into watercolour right away. Very precise and straight to the point, I recommend this class to people who can't squeeze in a 2-hour class into their schedule.
Beautiful class, easy to follow ! Thank you !
well done short tutorials covering many of the basics for getting started in watercolors
