This only one of Erin's classes, the first maybe. I have done 2 and just about to start a third. Really lovely classes and I highly enjoy them.

Too spirited not to...

I loved it, so well explained, it looks so fun and easy to do. I know it will require tons of practice, but I'm looking forward to do that. Thanks for the class Kate! <3

Creative soul, order freak, eager to learn

The class has a very good run down on the tools one needs to have for water-colouring. A great illustration too!
