Hi I have always loved your work and have just finished watching your new DVD. Your technique for applying the paint to paper produces such beautiful vibrant results it is awe-inspiring. I can hardly wait until Sunday when I am going to try it out. The idea of finishing your painting by waxing instead of framing under glass is truly a life saver. You have a very gentle and encouraging way of teaching. This DVD – I just love it. —Janet S.
Hello, I bought your DVD this weekend and truly enjoyed learning from you. I have been a watercolorist for over 25 years. I was speaking this morning with an art masters student at Uquam and she was very excited about using the wax medium (as demonstrated in your video) on a watercolour. —Manon
