“Kristin has given me so much confidence and allowed me to fly with my painting in a way that I didn’t think was possible.”
“The analysis is really important to me, finding out what works and what doesn’t, as I’ve always had to analyse outcomes as part of my job.
In addition, in painting, as in cooking, it’s important to be able to rescue paintings that go wrong and lessons give me greater confidence to tackle my homemade disasters!
I have learnt a lot about colour mixing too and of course positive encouragement is so important.”
