Rachel - - #38642

I started this course as a complete beginner so wondered if I would pick it up. Purnima is such an excellent teacher that she made the whole experience really enjoyable at a pace that really worked for my skills. Purnima is friendly, very helpful and personable and makes the class really enjoyable indeed. She puts time and effort into the chosen subject and uses her expertise to teach the class the different techniques. I am now on my second course and my confidence is growing! Highly recommend.

Response from Art By Purnima:

Thank-you for your feed -back Rachel you are doing so well considering you have just started with your watercolour journey.
Keep up the good work. I look forward to teaching you more techniques.

One of the best experiences of the cruise. Excellent teacher who helped everyone develop their skills whether a complete beginner or someone with some experience. Full of enthusiasm and encouragement as well as the ability to share her expertise and lots of helpful hits. Still a long way to go but renewed my interest in painting and watercolours in particular.

I found Purnima to be a unique and highly skilled instructor of watercolour. The first thing that caught my attention was that she used an amplifier so we can hear her, this was much appreciated, the second was she took time to show us what had to be done, the third she paid attention to each one of us as individuals. Her knowledge of watercolour techniques and how to show us was outstanding. I highly recommend her.

I joined your class a few days ago, after New York. It has been very uplifting for me. My first experience with watercolour was in 1962 as a first year student in architecture at Miami University in Oxford Ohio. Then in 1973, during a masters degree work at Yale University I did additional sketching and colour theory studies. art has always been integral to my architecture career.
Eventually I became a professor and finally a Dean of architecture school at the University of Toronto.
Thank you for re-starting my interest in watercolour painting!

Purnima is an excellent instructor. I was somewhat worried that given it's on Zoom, would she really be giving us instruction that would be better than just, finding a free course on YouTube, but she gives actual feedback and we learned a variety of techniques. And plus because it's on Zoom, I was even able to invite my mother who lives in the United States to take part as well, and that made a really excellent way for us to have quality time even across the ocean. I highly recommend this course, and it's awakened a real excitement for this beautiful art form.

Hi Purnima

Many thanks for your teaching and support today.

What can I say but WOW did I enjoy it !

I felt terrified when you sent the outline for today's class .
Without your help I wouldn't have known where to start.
Once I started I didn't want to stop and couldn't believe how quickly time went as I was totally absorbed in painting.

My confidence and technical knowledge /skill increased beyond my expectations for today.

Please do more of these 2 Hour sessions. I will send you a copy of the 'masterpiece'.!!!

Bit apprehensive at beginning as not painted for a few weeks now but all fell back into place.

I am enjoying these classes and feel that I have made improvements. The sessions are well structured and Purnima is an excellent teacher. All the information needed is sent to you beforehand and then feedback and help given by Purnima (via e mail) after the sessions. The group are very friendly and welcoming.
I would recommend these sessions to beginners and more experienced painters.

I had tried watercolour painting on and off for ages but wasn't happy with the results. Purnima's approach to soft 'impressionistic' floral painting helped me to understand the use of a minimal palate and helped me to develop the skill of 'touching in paint' into washes to create soft effects. The Zoom classes are well paced and each step is explained by demonstration. Participants are then given enough time to complete the exercise. Participants, as a group, are friendly and encouraging.

Excellent watercolour course with clear step by step tutorials and demonstrations. Purnima is a friendly, encouraging and very engaging tutor and her style of teaching makes watercolours very accessible with the course being equally suited to both beginners and improvers.

Purnima has given me lots of confidence to to try and tackle watercolour projects on my own. She demonstrates techniques and gives you positive feedback, helping you to become self critical and make progress in your painting. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their watercolour skills whether you are a beginner or more experienced.

Highly recommend Purnima’s lovely watercolour classes.
I feel I have learnt such a lot in a short space of time; every session is so friendly, informative, relaxed and fun, and with clear and practical onscreen tuition and instant feedback, Purnima is so positive and encouraging to us all.
As a newcomer I feel I’m making good progress and I am proud of my work so far. This is a really great learning experience. The first time I’ve done an online course and everyone is so friendly who attends. Will definitely continue:)
Thank you x

I have been a student with Purnima for about two years. I find the course very comprehensive, we are taught several different techniques of how to use water colour as well as theory on how best to use our paints and produce a range of colours. I enjoy the classes very much, Purnima is a very good tutor and I have learnt a great deal over the last couple of years and look forward to learning even more in the future.

Highly recommend this course with Purnima, it was my first time doing a watercolour course on zoom and it was amazing. Clear video tutorial with step by step live demonstrations made it achievable, interactive and fun. I’m really proud of my work so far in my watercolour sketchbook and look forward to carrying on. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try something new! Thank you
