Angela's style of painting is effortless, she seems to know exactly what to do when needed, for example she made some "happy mistakes" and showed us how to use that to our advantage. I liked her down to earth mood to this class, and it was really enjoyable to watch.
As a water color novice I could watch her lessons week after week and still learn and grow from this class.
Here is my example from the class. What do you think? it's very expressive and bright. My objective for this painting is that the viewer could feel movement from looking at the piece, as if a gentle breeze was blowing the flowers on a spring day.
