    This was my first time trying an acrylic painting and I am amazed. I have received so many compliments on the painting and I owe it all to Dennis and his method of teaching. Thank you so much for the enjoyable hours.

    Very helpful. Some very good tips about achieving an interesting but not dominant background. Very worthwhile.
