This was a really cool class - thank you for sharing all the numbers and tricks for this cool watercolor effect. Also - this class is very get-to-the-point, which I like, as I don't have to sit around and wait for the teacher to talk and talk and not really get to the point of why we are all here - to learn the specific method! No skipping forward required! Loved it!
