Great class!
I really enjoyed the teacher's knowledge and techniques. She was very good at explaining her process and WHY she did certain things and why they make sense in the real world (ex: perspective, colour washing away at distance, etc)

I've really enjoyed this class. I was soooo afraid to start painting water. Taking this class was the best thing i've done to overcome that fear...it really gave me the tools and the courage to start painting seascapes.
