Hi Birgit... I'm thrilled with your extensive comments. :-) I'm really enjoying the course and to have such a valuable critique is such a wonderful addition to this course. Its as good, or possibly even better than being in a class with you. Feel like I'm on the right track with the right tutor to help me. Kind regards from Jude. :-)
"WOW!!! You are such a real professional!!! I love how you are instructing...quiet, confident voice, SAYING exactly what you are doing and why, SHOWING exactly what you are doing and why, USING the reference photo as a guide and REFERRING to the practice sample as a reminder that "you can do it"!! And then GIVING the students time to put into practice what you've just taught with your comments and suggestions ready to help! WOW! Not only a first class instructor, but an excellent and beautiful artist. I LOVE YOUR WORK!" Cheryl Feragen

"Birgit! You are amazing master of painting enriching our minds, hearts and imagination with your art. Thank you," Zlatica Stauder
"Birgit is an excellent instructor who is organized, informative and thorough in her presentations. Also she is very supportive and helpful in her comments on the painting submissions. I felt strongly that she really wanted me to learn and improve and produce a painting that would make me feel that I had achieved a result that would be worthwhile. I would take another class from her in a heartbeat. Sincerely," Trish Kuncewicz
"I wanted you to know that I really appreciate your calm teaching voice. It was one of the main reasons I chose your class. You speak very thoughtfully, slowly, and clearly. While watching the videos, I picked up a lot of helpful instruction, before of working on the actual painting. Using the sweeping upstroke to avoid spreading at the end of the stroke, and softening the edges of lines with a larger brush both worked beautifully, much improving my first attempts! I'll be starting to paint the poppy tomorrow – so excited!" Thanks in advance, Laurie
"Hi Birgit. Wow!!!Looks great!!!You are tireless!!!! I love the video courses. Thank you for sharing your expertise with the rest of us". Mary Louise
