    This course really helped me push my Plein Air painting to another level.

  2. mr_quo (verified owner)

    This is a fabulous course from an amazing, and hugely experienced artist. There’s enough theory here to get the fundamentals down, but this does not get in the way of the demonstrations. Many courses I see like this, assume too much and leave you floundering and generally feeling inadequate. Not true here. Ronnie talks openly and in an encouraging and constructive manner. I rediscovered watercolour a few years ago and Ronnie’s mentorship has taken my work to a new level and more importantly, reignited my enjoyment of the medium.
