"I am so glad that Nancy came out with this new series of videos. I just purchased all three and I really love them all. If you are having any trouble with color as I do, then these videos should really help. She is such a great teacher. I like the way she discusses not only her own work but the work of master painters as well. She is a true teacher.... Thank you, Nancy for being such a great teacher. I have been painting for many years and yet I always learn so much from you!"
