    Great tutorial,really easy to follow. I enjoyed doing this and finaly understand the rocks underwater technuque as well as the water ripples. Looking forward to doing another.

    I loved this beautiful, easy to follow tutorial. I took it as I’ve always wanted to draw clear water, felt it was beyond my capability, but Sue’s confident use of colour and knowledge made it feel relaxing and enjoyable and left me with the confidence to try more clear water projects. Thank you

    Loved this tutorial, learned so much from it. Sue’s guidance and the fact you could go back and rewatch the video until you mastered the skills to offer a half reasonable picture at the end. I would recommend this tutorial to anyone wanting to paint landscapes, it covers sky, rocks, water and reflections.

    Wonderful instruction! This type of reflection I thought would be difficult but you show easy ways to make it accessible

    I wouldn’t even attempt to do rocks under water but Sue’s tutorial was so inspirational with clear, easy to follow steps. My attempt is not perfect by any means but the main thing is it makes you feel you have made progress and gives you the confidence to keep going! Thanks Sue.

    Thank you Sue for another wonderful, indepth tutorial. I am learning so much. Sue guides you gently through the the process and I really find it beneficial to be able to slow the tutorials down, especially on the tricky bits.

    Great tutorial from Sue, found the reflections hard to do but took my time and listened to Sue, loved how the rocks once shadowed seem to come alive. Great learning curve for me.

    i found myself becoming a little stale with my painting, I couldn’t seem to get the little things right no matter how much i tried, Sue’s tuition has helped me tremendously to do things differently and get more satisfying results.
    I love the fact that you can keep going back to the lessons and dip in to use the techniques from different parts of the lesson to apply to other paintings. this means you can keep learning from the session to develop your own skills. There are so many details in one lesson that to only use it once would would be great shame, as they say practice makes perfect. Try finding other pictures with similar content and apply Sue’s demostrations to them.

    Also posted yesterday but corrections has been done so Here we go again – after Sue Kerrigan-Harris ‘s tips I have drawn the rocks a second time – I do think they look a lot better, but I’m not 100 % satisfied with them 😚 but I learned a lot ☺️

    This was a great tutorial. Easy enough to follow and amazing results. Was so pleased with my finished piece. I didn’t have all the same shades but managed to make it work. Lovely to see the pastels layer up and make the wonderful sea colour. Sue’s presentation skills are great. Very relaxing you get really immersed in the experience.

    As a beginner to pastels and certainly my first online tutorial on them I found Sue’s instructions easy to follow and very helpful. Excellent advice on the use of pastels and their properties and the way to make them work for you. I can highly recommend these tutorials, and I look forward to doing some more.

    Thanks again for a fantastic tutorial so much to learn in this with Sue’s guidance tips and advice all the way through. Give it a go

    My painting is a fail, but so many learning points:
    size matters – I went for A4 rather than 8″ x 8″, but more rocks does not mean a better painting;
    surface matters – I often start with Canson mi-teintes as I know I rarely get it right first time and the Canson is a whole lot cheaper than Pastelmat, but I got about an hour into this painting and realised it wasn’t going to work at all. The layering is crucial to the rocks under water and mi-teintes just doesn’t have the tooth. I got around the problem to some extent by adding an alcohol wash to the darker areas, but the rocks look like blobs.
    Colour choice matters – I went a bit off-piste with some of the colours in the large central rock and it looks like Florentine embroidery.
    However, none of these matter as much as what I’ve learnt NOT to do. Sue’s instruction, is, as always, fabulously detailed and I have loved the process, if not the end result. I will try it again and hope to do better next time, but even if I don’t , I will learn more.
