I couldn't have believed it!

I completed your Splash Out and Paint course and found the tonal and colour mixing exercises really helpful. I then did this painting on the weekend, "Majestic Splendour", literally using just the 3 primary colours plus white - couldn't have believed these colours were possible and it's the first painting I've done in a year.

I loved It!

I'm only used to oil paint so acrylics was a scary topic! Now I feel more confident to give acrylics a go and really go for the water and loosen up! Looking forward to more 😄😉 ps loved watching you paint!
