Great class.

Love this. I am half-way through lesson 5. I have created my diamond grid and my 1/3's grid. I have wanted to learn how to use my Photoshop to do this for quite awhile now!

An Inspiring Class

I knew that artists were using photoshop to design paintings but I didn't know how to begin. Now I do, thanks to this class. I can not get over the quality of the artists teaching at Craftsy and for a very modest cost.
Everything about this class was well thought out and presented in a clear and enjoyable format.
The reading list was also appropriated to subject and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the books. ( Have a degree in art history)
I can only hope you will teach ...

Excellent class, skillfully taught

In addition to being a terrific painter, Martin W. is an excellent teacher. Explanations are clear and easy to follow. This class offers sophisticated techniques to bring your paintings to a higher level, but in very practical ways. No special equipment or techniques are required. I can't begin to count how many questions that I've had for years about oil painting were answered (I'm primarily a watercolorist). The completed painting is very beautiful.

Great Information

Easy to follow and understand. Topics covered were well done and broken down regarding composition, process, etc. Not too many classes are designed that way which makes this a nice addition to further education.
