As a total beginner this site made me feel I could achieve anything I set out to do. The instructions did not "talk down" to me - rate this one very highly.

Pages don't fully print. Must shrink to 50% to get all the information.

They look grat to me. Have been a china painter for many years and am interested on doing some water color painting. You make it look like I could do it.

After a somewhat dismal experience in watercolor painting in an art class, finding your easy to understand and very helpful hints on your website have given me a renewed hope that I just might be able to DO this!! Thanks a bunch, Susie!.

Dear Susie,
Thank you so much for the instructions, on so many subjects. I have been struggling with a technique that I dearly wanted to perfect and had no idea how. I had made a couple of lovely rosebuds and about six absolute losses. I knew what I wanted to achieve, had done it twice but had no idea how I'd managed it. I now have a much better plan, and I realize that being patient between glazings is curtial. I really appreciate your kind guidance. On the road to creativity. Jan

Susie Short gives directions for simple elegant paintings that can be understood by beginners and more experienced artists. While my favorite medium is oils, I am occasionally called to teach a watercolor class and this site is filled with extremely useful illustrations and covers all of the basics for me to pass on to others.

I'm just a beginner, but this site feels simple enough I want to try. Thank You

Love this site. I bought her DVD. It's great. Wish she had more time for new "stuff". Would like to see a lesson on painting sea shells.

Good information. Easy to follow and very useful even for an experienced watercolor artist. Thank you.

Hi Susie,

Your's is a very nice site. I am a self taught artist and I have taken a lot of hints and inspiration from this site. It is in the top of my bookmarks on painting tutorials.

your instructions and designs are wonderful. They are very informative and teach the "small" instructions. I will refer to it very OFTEN.

Thanks so much,
