Mario's class was simply the best art class I have taken on Craftsy. His lessons were so interesting and so clear and his demonstrations showed you how to control the painting and the medium. His technique is beautiful and I feel my next painting will be much better because of him. PS. This class is better than almost all of the classes I have gone to with live teaching artists. I would buy more classes taught by Mario.

Great Instructor

Update to my first review (below). I am amazed at how often I keep coming back to this course and re watching the instructions. Each time I learn something new and I keep refining my techniques. Hands down this is the best course I have taken on Craftsy.

This is a very good class with an obviously talented instructor. Although the course is mainly for watercolour portraits the techniques taught are transferable to other watercolour paintings like landscapes, water scenes, etc. ...
