“I now own Linda Kemp’s new book and her old book and 2 DVD’s of her workshop; each time I watch a video or read and study her new book, I learn more and more. She is an excellent teacher and explains her method so well that anyone could benefit from it. I highly recommend her workshops (books and videos). She really knows her stuff.”

Linda is an excellent teacher and her acrylic and watercolor painting techniques are not only enjoyable to learn, but so easy to adapt to your own style and subjects. Try it with abstract subjects as well as landscape elements, or even branch out with different mediums for your layers to add oomph to your work.
