Informative and concise. Really learned what I needed to to move forwARD. NO ON TO WORK!
love Deborahs exxxplanation of composing abstract ,
Excellent teaching organization and very informative. I would like to be able to watch it again?
new Experience for me, but I love it.
This was very informative. I've watched many videos on abstract painting, and how or why they are applying the medium is rarely explained with any clarity. I really appreciated the way Debora clearly explained color combinations and the various compositions. Will probably watch again!
She explained at a pace that was not over whelming and yet great basic fundamentals so important to a more successful painting. I LOVE how she handle pastels so eloquently and using various other mediums complimenting pastel painting.
