Lot of Talking

Video is a visual medium so more visuals and less talking heads would be great.

Tons of information about materials! I appreciated all the tips and tricks for overcoming both physical and mental challenges when using watercolors. This course was an excellent source of inspiration for me to develop my own style and allow myself to make mistakes along the way.

So informative! Really helped my confidence with working through mistakes! I just wish there were more opportunities to work alongside her in a step-by-step manner. But I understand watercolours can make that difficult, and it didn't affect my overall enjoyment of the course
