Chris and esperoart are exemplary. The first reason is that Chris seems to have a gentle soul which shines through in each tutorial.
Then there are his captivating choices of subject matter. Each is not a botanical illustration but each is vignette; it captures a moment.
Lastly is his teaching presentation. His relaxed manner and pace enable the student to follow each step. I have learned so much about controlling watercolor. I have studied at times with 5 other fabulous instructors, and, altnough they are truly gifted artists and gentle teachers, I have learned so much about what errors I was making. Thank you, Chris.
