Thank you for the very comprehensive, informative and inspiring water colour course. I thoroughly enjoyed your suggestions and seeing the progression in the students art. That format was very useful for me as a new student. I’m still learning the basics of water colour. Lesson two of your course has been very helpful for colour blending. I will continue to paint, paint, paint! I’m hooked!
Shelagh, 2020 Spring Course
I want to thank you so much for your wonderful course. I am trying to find my "voice" as you say, instead of copying others, as I've done in the past. When I feel lost, I take out your course and re-read your words. I am finding it so helpful. A most grateful student,
Betty Haines, 2019 Fall Course
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your own videos. I learned
so much watching you paint and describe what you were doing and why. I have
watched quite a few YouTube videos on watercolour instruction but I must say I
really learned a lot more from watching you!
Susie Sinclair, 2019 Fall Course
This course was excellent and very beneficial! Thank you so much for sharing
your skills and knowledge - I definitely learned a lot. From making my own
reference photo with strong values, to cropping the pictures to get the best
composition, making soft edges and increasing the intensity of colours and
contrasts, all your advises were amazing! I am sure I will come back to your
lessons again and again as I grow as an artist. I would definitely recommend this
course to others!
Irina Valentin, 2019 Fall Course
It has been such a pleasure to take your course. Each week I looked forward to
your tutorials. Thank-you for sharing your passion, talent and instruction. Your
paintings are absolutely stunning and will keep me motivated to keep practising
and learning. Thanks for sharing the videos and thank your students for allowing
you to share their progress and paintings. It was all very inspirational. Many thanks,
Verna, 2019 Fall Course
I loved the course, have it all printed out and it's on my shelf with my flower
books because I do consider it as a book filled with most valuable information
that I will be referring to again and again! And I believe you should write a book,
it would be a smash hit! Thank you for your gorgeous flower paintings, something
for me to aspire to!
JoAnne Magnan Welch, 2019 Fall Course
This was a wonderful class. I could not be happier with the content and how in depth it was. You are encouraging and I take heart in your words that we will develop our own style if we keep on painting. I had high expectations coming from you - but it really exceeded my hopes. Thank you Marney!
Laurie Stoff Worth, 2018 Fall Course
Your course is really well-organized, thoughtfully planned and thorough. . . . You were incredibly observant of your student’s work, and provided helpful and thorough advice in your weekly critiques. You chose good examples of the various kinds of problems that students encounter, and provided concrete solutions. It was fun to watch them develop.
While your paintings overall are incredible, I think that in addition your careful attention to backgrounds puts you a cut above others. . . .Finally, your wise words on critiquing yourself and on expressing your voice were exceptionally thought-provoking and well-stated. A wonderful closure to the course.
