I did your snowman. I wish I could attach a picture, so pleased, never would have thought I could paint something half decent. Thanks for your time you take to make detailed videos. I appreciate it and next I’ll try your little mermaid scene I think. :) all the best. Emma

Hi Jasmine, I really appreciate your tutorials! I am able to follow your directions very easily and my beginner paintings are turning out wonderful! Do you have any additional step by step ones that are not videos? I find that reading the step by step directions work MUCH better for me than watching the videos. Thank you!
