Thanks, Birgit! This is the BEST class EVER! I'm So Excited. Fanna

Hi Birgit, I enjoy learning to express what impression I see onto watercolor paper. I really enjoy seeing one's personality translate into a scene & 'take your breath away in color and presentation. Painting with Birgit is challenging and fun. I admire your intuitive eye & talented skills. Beth DelGrande Capitola CA

Excellent course! Birgit presents lessons in a very engaging, logical and easy to understand manner. She presents several different aspects of clouds, waves, and water in separate lessons. Everyone who wants to paint waves and water should have this in their library. ! Agnes F.

Thank you, you do so much for everyone and Thank you for all that you do for your painting students. When you are teaching, you put it all on the table, you really do not hold back with information and techniques that you use. I am sure everyone appreciates the constant updating, the looking for a better way to share your knowledge and giving so much of yourself and your time to help people improve their skills. Thanks again, Trish

I love how you challenge your students to paint outside our comfort zones. I've incorporated all of it into my own paintings. Frances
