This class, like her cloud class, is absolutely a must to watch for new watercolor artists. Her presentation of the material makes sense, informative and allows for your own personal touch while you work on your own project. Erin is an excellent teacher!!! 10/10 would watch her other stuff!
Excellent teacher and really nice skills to learn. I really appreciated the pace and also the fact that everything is in real time and you can actually paint as Erin speaks. Very much recommended!
