If I see that there are questions that are repeated frequently, I will add another lecture to answer and provide advice in specific areas.
5. How long will I have access to my course?
From the date of your purchase, you will have unlimited access for two years. If you have not finished your course within this time, just contact me and I will happily make it available again if the course remains active.
6. What materials do I need?
You will find a PDF with a list of supplies and suggestions of where to buy them.
7. What level do I require for this course?
This class is suitable for all levels. If you feel that you don’t need the introduction and theory of the class, you can skip those lectures, but in my experience even advanced students can benefit from watching another artist work using a different style.
8. What is the difference between your in-person and online classes?
My in-person workshops are four hours long and hosted in my studio, where I guide my students to paint one main theme, usually loose florals or botanical moons.
These online master classes are designed to cover a wider range of themes, from the use of supplies, suggestions on how to gather inspiration, the importance of posture, and insights into how I work in my studio, including several demos where you can take a closer look at how I work.
