    Looking forward to the course since I am about to try oils for the first time. I already have purchased your CD series for both Acrylics and Watercolours. Would love to have a similar CD set for Oil painting for beginners.
    Many thanks Bob.
    A great fan in Canada

    I am interested only in watercolours and drawing. Will I have access 24/7 to only these interests of choice or will such access be for specific courses that may be other than these?
