Thank you so much for a very enjoyable painting course. It was a real treat to be out in such marvellous scenery and to be able to 'dabble' all day.Thank you for your patience and gentle instruction. Carole from Bristol

I just have to tell you that I have had a thoroughly great time and I feel with some homework time my work will improve, you have given me the extra confidence I need. Best wishes Leslie
