"Wow, Birgit, what a fantastic course! I have learned so much, made so many valuable mistakes and produced some eye-popping paintings. I can't thank you enough for teaching me how to push around watercolor paint." Carol Cox

"I am learning so much, both techniques and materials. I can feel and see the difference in my regular painting and am so much closer to the brilliance of color I was searching for. This process is inspiring and has my creative juices flowing again." Dianna Harrison

"I am learning so much from the class" Jessica Shaffer

"I have struggled with that for years and FINALLY, thanks to you, feel that I have a better grasp of th techniques. I’ve also learned a great deal about the different types of brushes -synthetic, natural & blends and how each hold water differently. You're the only instructor to explain it throughly. This has been a FANTASTIC course - thanks so much for offering it! I really like the online courses (this is my second) & will definitely be taking more! Thanks again, Karen Schmidt

"I was suffering from ”painter’s block”, this course took me way out of my comfort zone and challenged my preconceptions about water color I took a deep breath, jumped in and "It worked" the juices are once more flowing. Thank you for restoring my faith in myself. I am raring to go. Diana Harrison

"Its as good, or possibly even better than being in a class with you. "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. Feel like I'm on the right track with the right tutor to help me". Kind regards from Jude. :-)

"Many thanks for "Fearless Flowers". The lessons have all been perfect for me - I have been contemplating flowers for some time and your advise and critiques (written and the live webinars) have helped me to push through the frustrations that quite often occur when I try something out of my comfort zone. Being able to watch and hear you walk through the flower paintings has been as if you were right here beside me. Til later......Beth Bentz

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! a first class instructor" Cheryl Feragen

I would take another class from her in a heartbeat." Sincerely, Trish Kuncewicz
