Sarah is a gem and makes watercoloring a pure joy! I have been following Sarah on Instagram and love her style and color palettes - so I also bought her book, which is packed with easy to follow information, techniques and lessons. My friend and I recently attended one of her online Zoom classes, and it felt so comfortable - as if we were right there with her, painting in her studio with her! We absolutely loved it and have already signed up for more. Sarah is a natural teacher, easy to follow and understand, and accessible for questions - which made the class fun and successful. I loved learning how to paint her beautiful palette of colors! The florals we painted in using her techniques turned out so beautifully due to her well-developed, methodical and expert teaching abilities. Receiving all of the necessary materials ahead of time was awesome, and got me excited for class. I appreciate her level of organization and thoroughness to detail. It's so thoughtful! Thank you Sarah, keep the classes coming!
