Dear Birgit I want to thank you (among all the other teachers) for sharing your knowledge. I think that you are extremely good at explaining what you are doing in a pedagogical way and also extremely good at creating something beautiful by selecting the basic things which by the brain will make a scene complete without unnecessary details. I know that it is a skill that is hard to achieve. I have learned a lot from you! Thank you! /Erik

HI Birgit, THANK YOU THANK YOU......Every time I watch one of your demos I can't wait to get painting. Those quick easy expressions get me jump started when I'm putting off starting a "project" painting.. Elaine Valdini

These courses are so down to earth and easy to understand. I think that even I, a beginner, will be able to learn and do with practice. Elma Kitch
