When I was searching for an on-line watercolor school, it was Chris’s subject matter, vivid colors, and composition that caught my attention. A few weeks later, I discovered so much more. The tutorials give not only detailed, step-by-step videos, but throughout Chris gives commentary about why he is doing something and tips he’s learned along the way; priceless wisdom and experience! Chris eagerly shares all he knows to help make his students successful, a truly skilled teacher.
The lesson on color theory was so comprehensive, yet easy to understand, that it taught me things that up until now I found difficult to comprehend. The techniques Chris shared for enlarging and transferring an image have been invaluable to me, reducing both my time and effort. Best yet, as he continues to learn new things, Chris shares with this students, students share with each other, and the forums become a fresh wealth of information.
Finally, Chris is impressively responsive to live chat, emails, and forum discussions. I especially appreciate his critique of my paintings. He is always able to spot that which I could not and offer insightful suggestions for improvement, all while giving encouragement and consideration to individual style. I feel like I stuck gold the day I decided to join this watercolor school. I’ve learned so much, have so much more to learn, and I know I’ll learn it here!
