Enjoyed the workshop very much. Explanations and demo very clear and concise. My challenges are getting water to pigment ratios and I love how you explained the tea, milk, etc. My goal is to get it right in few steps! So going to try it again. Thanks Brienne!

Brienne's workshop is great. She goes through each step guiding you through the process clearly while demonstrating her techniques and approach. I really learned a lot from her critique, as well. She recognized my tendency to overwork areas with my brush and identified my other problems, as well. I would highly recommend this workshop to ANYONE, be it a beginner or an advanced painter, wanting to learn watercolor. Thanks, Brienne, for the great lesson! Roxy
