  1. I am not painting as you go along but using your posted classes, therefore I can backtrack and pause the class. I have enjoyed these so very much, it has help get through the coronavirus shut down. I look forward to doing them.

  2. Classes have been very helpful with drawing techniques. Also, the ellipse section of your perspective course was extremely helpful. Always struggled with ellipses and now understanding the perspective center has really help me improve.
