I just watched your videos and they were fantastic. Olga I own DVDs of other artist. She is a wonderful creative artist and she travels all over the world I guess teaching. But to be honest with you I really think Olga that your art and creativity have gone BEYOND what this artist does. I see more creativity in your tutorials than in other DVDs. I am so grateful to have found you on the net and I do hope you continue with your teaching because your tutorials were VERY informative and I learned soooooooooo much.Susan
Olga is very optimistic and enthusiastic about water coloring. I am a beginner and prior to taking this class I was a bit intimidated about using water colors - now I feel encourage, capable and just as excited about water color and using my imagination and techniques learned through Olga as she does.Calandra
Artist and illustrator, Olga Peregood guides you through a playful exploration into watercolor world as a tool and source of power, enthusiasm and creativity. In this class, Olga will show you her simple (and seemingly magical) techniques to gain WOW effect according your chosen subject. Look on intriguing titles some of her exercises: “Paint a water fish can’t leave without!”; “Paint a fur that eager to touch”; “Train an artist agility”; “Let wind to play beneath leaves with watercolor”.Duration:

I’m enjoying your Wow effects course. As you can see I have a long way to go! I think next I’ll try the palm trees. I absolutely love how you paint them! You make it all look so easy and of course it’s not, but such fun anyway. I’ve been watching your YouTube demos and love those too. I’ve taken lots of online watercolor classes and am discovering that I prefer the loose style over the more realistic. I’m finding it more difficult too, you’d think it would be easier but no no! LolNancy Melching
Each class is filled with lovely painting subject, Wow Effects as well. I’m an addicted flower-painter, and in every class I find something to take further and learn a lot. I feel I’m growing as an artist, I really appreciate the classes so much! Here is my stockroses from 4 Train An Artists agility from course "Creating WOW Effects In Watercolor". Or is it hollyhocks? Is it the same flower? I painted filled hollyhocks. I think the flower you showed in the class is Delphiniums 🙂 I first tried to paint this in reds and orange, but I was too eager with the colors in the flowers some the went too dark.Ingunn

Thank you so much for this lovely course. I really enjoyed watching your techniques and the effects they achieve. I would love to see any more of your unique techniques, and ways to combine watercolors with ink. I'm very interested in the way your work combines the random freedom of flowing watercolor with the more deliberate fine detailed brush work.Mimi
I love how free and easy you are in your painting..... I think I am too up-tight and try to be too realistic, and after watching and listening to you....I will try to allow myself to "feel and experiment with my imagination". I love your enthusiasm in your work. I would like to see you do more paintings. I thank you for sharing your talent with the world, and look forward to seeing more courses from you.Elaine House
I'm just getting started with watercolours, and your course was initially not quite what I was expecting. However, as I continued through the lessons, I appreciated that your style is more abstract, and liked the results that you could get.John Rudge
I paint to escape winter, rainy days, I have magical feeling, cozy space, where all problems are washed away. Loose style was so difficult to approach, but once I achieved it, I deserve such freedom. Having this experience every day is like... Imagine you have trump card wherever you go, no matter what happens you have something magic tool in a pocket. There is something magical in a corner of your smile, you feel energized, happy, or peaceful. You bring that sense of freedom, peace, joy into your day.Duration:

I have tried the cling wrap technique and chose the colors of fall that are everywhere this week. I love the colors and how they mix on the paper, however this is where I get "stuck" I am looking for negative shapes like your tutorial shows, to bring out some leaves and branches, Is it just inexperience, or will I eventually be able to move past this point and be pleased? I chose MoodMaker, to also learn to paint white, as well as eyes. I am very pleased with the results of both these subjects through your instruction and tutorials. I have painted many eyes since learning and am always amazed to see how they just appear, and want to paint more and more of them.Faye Johansen
I also learned form you that it is very beneficial to do a warm up of the subject I want to paint. I did it in my sketchpad. Would also like to share with you my painting of my beagle which my son requested because he is now in another country. He saw the eyes and he said that they seemed alive. I said that I learned that from you. Your daily tutorials are living up to the title My big dream because it is my dream to be able to pain everyday. You are "forcing" or should I say encouraging me to do it daily by inspiring me through your video tutorials.Chona

I simply loved to follow watercolor painting course "Sun-Kissed Fall", you are an amazing teacher and inspirator and I can watch the films over and over again. It’s not difficult to adjust your lessons to my own style, they give my paintings a new dimension. I have just enrolled the 2015-tutorials & can’t wait to paint hydrangeas and carnations. I’m so happy I found you, you make my day 🙂 You are a wonderful & genuine human being, I can feel your passion for painting of what you create as well as your love for your students. Thank you! I think I have to enroll all your courses 🙂 It’s pure joy to see you paint and I’m grateful to learn from your knowledge an experience.Kindest Ingunn B. Wang

It is passed a year from my last course "Creating WOW Effects In Watercolor" and I have so many discoveries in watercolor since than! More bright colors, more confident brushstrokes, more exciting results as well as keep your painting session loosed and lazy. Paint fall, sunflowers, butterflies, fur and feathers and moreDuration:

I learned so much during this class and it was so much fun to see the teacher (Olga) presenting those different water color techniques while giving examples for the use of each one of them. It inspired me instantly - thank you for this great class and the way you explained itMarie Oelker

So many people ask me how I can possibly like watercolor it is so hard to control. This class celebrates the mystical way of watercolor. So much fun to lay down color with no pressure to make it look like anything!Leslie Panfil
I have to admit Ms. Peregood's teaching is a bit quirky and a few times borderline awkward, but the content she presents with a positive attitude is outstanding. I do not need to sit for a thorough explanation or history of techniques, I need someone to be straightforward and show me so I can begin to experiment, and that is exactly what Olga doesRam Diaz
This is a fantastic and playful class that also encourages and teaches you how to paint intuitively. Olga happens to be a favorite teacher of mine!Tasha Soto
