  5. Hi!

    I work at a public library and was wondering if we could use this tutorial for a watercolor paint night in July. The event is free. I’d be happy to post pictures when we’re done!

  6. I’m confused about when to take the tape off. Step 5 implies the tape is off because you’re adding brush strokes to the tree trunks. But it doesn’t say to Take the tape for until step 8. Can you clarify? I want to do this!

  7. Hello,
    I am going to paint this wonderful painting with my staff and residents tomorrow at the nursing home where I work at. I am volunteering to help them become wonderful artists. A lot of them are looking foward to it. Ill send you the results of their paintings.
    Thank you,
