Very informative! This lady is a good teacher, creative and easy to follow.
Okay, this is the first class where seeing how clouds are painted REALLY made sense to me. Erin's instruction is clear and friendly and makes painting clouds very accessible. Being able to add this to my growing repertoire of techniques is going to add so much to my art. Thanks Erin!
