I have found my watercolour course to be a very good opportunity to improve my wet in wet techniques. The course was in a greater depth than my previous one had been. Purnima is a very patient teacher.

The class was excellent with Purnima giving attention to any issues that I might experience with the painting - she was very attentive and considerate. After the course she advised me of different online courses that I could do in the future.

I joined Purnima’ S class last year. I love the informal style and the relaxed persona of Purnima. We are not pressured into completing the subject that we are performing in any session.We receive constructive criticism so that we can improve our techniques. I enjoy the sessions as the other pupils are friendly and supportive. I hadn’t painted in Watercolours before Purnima classes but I think that with her encouragement I am progressing.

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.
