Christine broke down the process of making a watercolour into easy stages; her explanations and demonstrations were very clear; I'm new to painting of any sort and have regarded myself as hopeless with colour but this course has given me confidence to continue; in fact I've made a small watercolour still life this morning with acceptable results. So thank you.
