“ I would never have imagined I'd come even close to painting a reasonably accurate human figure or let alone a full coloured portrait and even landscape in 8 weeks! Anne has given me a gift that I truly value ”
“ The learning process Anne makes you goes through felt so natural that it wasn't overwhelming at all. ”
“ I have always struggled to control my strokes when attempting to paint, by using the brushes recommended by Anne and adjusting flow and opacity to very low levels allowed me control on what I was putting down! ”
“ I had a real "Eureka" moment doing this. I had never ever considered doing a grayscale of an image, neither had I ever considered going from dark to light. Doing it this way really helped me... For me, this alone has been worth the cost of the course. ”
