This is the first class I finished on here and that's because it was so well made and easy to understand. My painting abilities have improved so much just from this class and I would recommend it to anyone!

Really enjoyed this course. I have been painting in transparent watercolor for several years and have only just taken up acrylics. Robert’s course reinforced many of the concepts I already know and can now apply to an opaque medium. I can’t wait to start the next course!
