Great course! Very inventive and this gave me new inspiration for painting! The instructor explains techniques and demonstrates in a way that makes me feel like I can go out and get the materials and start doing gold leaf right away. She is very clear and concise and the demonstrations are very well done. I also love how she shows how sophisticated it can look in her paintings. In the second part, I learned techniques that can be used over the gold leaf or in my regular painting. She really explained a lot about different mediums and processes.
