Watercolour Landscapes with Rob Nelmes (Course inactive)

In-person
John Williamson - - #33222

Sue was a great host and cook for this workshop. Rob is a wonderful teacher and he really helped me see what I need to do to improve my watercolour paintings. I'm a beginner, so I needed lots of patient guidance and Rob was certainly up to the task. If you are just starting out, take this course. Thanks again for a great learning experience!
