    I LOVED this course! Loved that I could go back again and again and re-learn.
    Have done a face to face class with De in the past, and found this online course to be filled with the same generous teaching, and wonderful enthusiasm. Only limitation is not having someone around to comment on what you have done – but it does address generic problem solving.
    Would HIGHLY recommend this – just ordered the two inking courses …. time to play 🙂

    Here’s a review from Aisling, who couldn’t wait to tell us in person how much she enjoyed the workshop!

    Aisling said – “As a person who learns through doing rather than watching, I was doubtful that watching a workshop onscreen would be useful to me. Boy was I wrong! I was fascinated – sucked in straightaway and scribbling down notes like a madwoman.
    To see every single step from blank canvas to finished painting, and to be able to selectively go back through the chapters & see bits time and time again was fantastic. The drop-down titles really helped with learning the vocabulary of painting & the names of the products used.
    I have attended multiple workshops & classes with De, and truly thought I understood about glazing; but she managed to teach me even more during this video workshop. Now that I understand about different knives and brushes & how to use them, I have gifted myself some exciting new tools to use in my next paintings.
    Thanks, De, for your incredible generosity and the way you don’t hold anything back!”

    You are welcome, Aisling!
