Fabulous class!

Mary Murphy has a talent for taking the angst out of watercolor and making it fun and actually seem easy! I took this class to just see if I thought I could watercolor. After watching the entire class, I purchased all the supplies and painted with Mary! I appreciated her technical expertise and so many opportunities to watch her to mirror her movements and style. Fabulous class!

Fantastic Class!

Mary was kind enough to help me choose the best Craftsy class to take in order to learn about watercolor basics (as a beginner) with the intent to transfer that knowledge to painting on royal icing cookies with gel food color.

What a Great Class!

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this class, and Mary as a teacher.

I highly recommend this class, and any that Mary teaches! ~Sue P

I learned a lot of new techniques and some different ways of looking at the painting process. [I love the tip about setting a piece aside for a while to consider if it is done or not.] I really enjoyed the lessons on composition and 'fixing'. So often those ...

Excellent Course

I couldn't be more pleased with this course! Mary Murphy's paintings are vibrant, transparent, and really capture the magic of watercolour. She's an excellent presenter & instructor. She explains exactly what she is doing, and why - she's very clear and articulate. The camera work gets in very close and you can see how she is using the brush and applying the paint, as she describes her own process. She covers a broad range of techniques, and I feel I really I learned a great deal from her. ...
