    Joyce, I just watched your DVD and it was almost like having you “just across the circle” again. I think it is going to be just what I needed to “recharge my batteries.” I am sure I will be using it again and again. You are so right about not reading the books and just going right to the painting. That is a mistake I have also been making trying to reproduce the photo. Thanks again, and again!

    The DVD is excellent. I remember you telling me much of what you shared in the DVD. I really love that you have a very systematic way of working. You are clear and give your viewer as much information about each step you take. Not all artists are good teachers…many times they can’t explain why they do what they do. But I count you among the best of teachers. You can’t learn how to paint without understanding the ‘why’ of things. Thank you for making the DVD and I definitely look forward to your next one.

    I just had to tell you, I sat down to watch your new DVD today and it is wonderfully done. I’ve always loved your technique and you explain it beautifully in the Coastal Cottages DVD. I really like how clearly and succinctly you describe your tools list and colors. Also it is so helpful to have a play-by-play of you painting, with no missing steps. I love the way you mix your colors on the paper. It gives such clear, fresh color and maintains the light. I already have some scenes in mind that I want to do. Off to my sketchbook to get to work. Thank you so much.

    The technical aspects of the DVD are very good. Your demeanor, the audio clarity, and the camera work that gave me a clear close-up view of the palette work, the application of paint to large shapes, and the detailed brushwork. Oh how I wish I’d seen this when I first started with watercolor years ago. I’d never seen ANYONE actually DOING a watercolor, much less someone as skilled as you.

    Hi Joyce, just wanted to let you know I got your DVD and it is WONDERFUL!!!!! Some of the things I like most — besides your beautiful style. I’ve viewed many instructional videos. Though I’m interested in them, when simply watching someone paint for a long stretch, I find my attention wandering…or I actually nod off. Inserting the asides where you are in the chair giving some valuable principles breaks up the session and resets my attention. No sleeping! Your running commentary as you do paint — not only what you’re doing, but your thought process and the principles behind what you do — makes the DVD valuable for even those who aim for a different style or those who use a different medium. And the technical aspects of the video are very good. Your demeanor, the audio clarity, and the camera work that gave me a clear close-up view of the palette work, the application of paint to large shapes, and the detailed brushwork. Oh how I wish I’d seen this when I first started with watercolor years ago. I’d never seen ANYONE actually DOING a watercolor, much less someone as skilled as you. So thank you for the excellent DVD. I can’t wait for the book to come out. Hope it will be as early in 2014 as possible. Meanwhile, hope the publisher will get the book on Amazon for pre-order. I routinely spot books that I might like to purchase when they’re released and put them in my Wish List. Great way to prime the sales pump.

    I ordered this DVD because I love Joyce’s paintings and I wanted to learn from her. It is a wonderful DVD!!! I can’t wait for the next one to come out. Thanks Joyce!

    I really enjoyed the DVD I purchased from you. I love the freshness and light of your art. As a newby watercolorist, I hope to include your generous and extremely helpful instruction into my art. With just a little practice, I’ve already seen an improvement in my watercolor art. I’m using a lighter touch, remembering to use interesting and various shapes, and mostly, simplifying.
    Again, thanks for a great DVD. I hope you produce more!

    My creative journey has led me more to mixed media, whimsical art, but every time I see one of your gorgeous paintings I get the urge to break out my first love…watercolors. You inspire me! And I love my copy of your coastal cottages DVD…So glad you made that for us to watch and refer back to. If I could only watch three watercolor artists to learn from, it would be you…Mary Whyte…and Charles Reid. True masters of the watercolor world!

    Your DVD is an excellent example of how to teach, especially on the subject of design.

    Joyce, I received Coastal Cottages a few weeks ago and cannot tell you how amazing it is. Your talent, style and straightforward teaching has helped me understand some of the basic principles of painting that I have struggled with for several years. You have a great on-camera delivery that is so pleasing…it’s like watching a good friend paint!!I have just placed an order for your Hilltop Homestead DVD. Please do another DVD soon!!

      Hi Nancy, I apologize for the late reply but it seems I am just behind these days! We have been in the middle of a big move from Texas to Georgia and I am just now seeing some daylight! I was so pleased to read that you enjoyed my Coastal Cottages video! I think you will also enjoy Hilltop Homestead as well because it will serve to reinforce everything you have been learning. I really do want to do more videos but it just seems like there is so little time left over from my workshop travel these days. I would love to meet and paint with you and hope you will get the chance to join me in a workshop somewhere, somehow!Thank you for your support of my work! I really appreciate it! And yes, you are my “good friend” thru art!!!
