Latest Reviews

Great class, Nolan. Very well explained and demonstrated and I learned a great deal. I am yet to try the painting but feel well-equipped to do so. One suggestion: when you indicate an area that you are talking about on the screen with the mouse cursor/pointer, could you please enlarge the cursor/poimter using your settings? I have a vision impairment and often find it difficult to locate the part of the painting that you are referring to. Thanks!
