Thank you! This was my first Skillshare class, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I can't wait to practice on some of my images now, and hopefully create a signature style, which I've been lacking. Thanks for your help!
Love it! Love it! Love it! Thank you very much
I do not agree with it all, but it is ok and always interesting to see other peoples ideas and perspective
