Here are some testimonials from our students
“I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying your classes. I am a first time user only since January and am now convinced that I can paint landscapes. I am a die-hard still life and florals painter in oils and can’t wait to get at some landscapes.”
“My work and ability to ‘see’ has improved considerably in these 3 months. Heart-felt thanks for a great student/teacher relationship here in real-time cyber space!!”
“Since watching your class, I look at my old paintings and see what I did wrong. I had no idea there is a ‘melodic line’ that conveys to the viewer in a positive way. Thanks for this eye opener and all the other gems.”
“Your classes have answered my two big questions which I have searched answers of for years. One is why master pieces have strong attractions. Another is how can I do to make my paintings more attractive. Thank you very much.”
“I’ve been teaching art for more than 20 years and, after spending approximately 60 hours with Johannes during his weekend classes, I feel like I should start over again. Wonderful teacher, wonderful teachings!!”
“I so appreciate your solid teaching on composition! Your enthusiasm for sharing this information is obvious. Thank you so much!”
“I have learned more in the past 12 weeks than I have in the 50 years I have been a pastel painter. You have a way to impress the knowledge you impart into my thick skull!! So happy I took the class.”
“I feel fortunate and privileged for having participated in your fantastic Webinar art class. Your unique, professional teaching has opened my eyes: I see, think and paint in a totally new way, and I’ve learned from you more than I ever have of the huge pile of art books I studied!”
“I’ve enjoyed your Wet Canvas lessons. The information on composition has been fabulous for me as a photographer and a fiber artist. What you say makes perfect sense. I started dabbling in watercolor and your guidance has given me the confidence that ‘I too can do this’.”
“My landscape attempts always seemed to be lacking that special spark. Your online workshop has shown me how in so many ways I was missing the mark. I can’t thank you enough for opening up a whole new genre for me!”
“I struggled for years with composition, value, color harmony, etc. Then I stumbled upon your Wet Canvas Webinar and, presto, within weeks things just clicked. The foreign became the familiar. You have given me the tools to create and blossom. Thank you ever so much!”
“I am so impressed with what he has to offer and very sad that I wasn’t able to do the whole course. He is amazing! I would tell anyone that if you want to learn how to paint landscapes….this is the man to do it with.”
