Stacey is so warm and "human". She does speak slowly so I watched most of the video on 1.25 speed. And the content is just perfect! As a beginner, I've been trying art class after art class trying to understand something. I didn't know what was missing so I couldn't ask for it. This was the missing piece of the puzzle. The very simple techniques for getting the colours and all their variations to interact with one another.
