judy Pearson ♪ ♫ ♪ Marionville, Va.

I thoroughly enjoy your website. Because I chose to put off my painting until my family was grown I find myself feeling like a beginner with a lot of unorganized knowledge. I am now trying to clarify that which I had learned so long ago into something fluid and satisfying. The help I am finding on your website is truly appreciated. Thank you for being there.

I always said I wanted to be an artist in my next life, but recently came to the realization that I better do it now. I just found your site today, and have learned so much already. This is great info for someone like me taking those first baby steps into unknown territory. Thank you so much for this service. The lessons are fantastic!

Lou de Beuzeville ♪♫♪Sydney Australia

 

I find myself in the miraculous situation of having a day at home and not TOO many other things I should be doing, so I thought I would google watercolour/watercolor lessons. And I found this. It is absolutely fantastic! Really. I like your clear instructions, I love your style of painting, and your accent is cool (no idea where it's from, but I suspect somewhere near where Woody Allen's is from??) I can't believe this is free!! I've bookmarked it and intend to go through each lesson. So far I did the one on clear skies.

Judy Coady ♪ ♫ ♪ Jacksonville, Fl.

Thank you so much for designing this great, teaching website. I've written a children's book and I'm illustrating it myself with watercolor crayons, which have led me to watercolor painting. Your lessons have proven invaluable to me as a budding painter. You are clear and concise w/ a great sense of humor which appeals to my wandering attention and keeps me on point. Take care and keep on teaching us "newbies" & "oldies".

Came across your website, and enjoyed it tremendously. I also paint, using acrylics and watercolors. I use to paint often when i was younger, seems like i never have the time anymore to sit and enjoy this gift from God. Sometimes i need to be pushed. Or i have to paint with someone else in order to start again. Well Thank You for the push.

Maryland, USA ♪ ♫ ♪ John S.Frederick,

 

Since visiting your website I realize I will become a fan of your talent and your inspiration!..can your please describe for me what you mean by ' sedimenrary color '? thanks,John S.Frederick, Md.

***** MY REPLY *****

Pigments are either significantly heavier than water or not. The heavier ones sediment out very quickly, pooling in the valleys of watercolor paper. This makes for a lovely shimmer in the final painting. BUT. It only works if you let the wah settle, and then DO NOT MESS WITH IT.

It's as though we are actually sitting together during the lesson. You really do understand what your student needs to learn and can impart it in a humorous way. I bet someone you were a "Nu Yurker" before I read your bio.
