  • <p>Fantastic! First- what this course is NOT. It is not learning about a filter or filters to push and make your photos look like &quot;paintings&quot;. This is so much more. It is a very good base for those who have never used Corel Painter before, and a good introduction to the new version, Painter X3, for those who are using an earlier version. But, on a much deeper level, this is Jeremy showing you how you can reach into your own creative well, and try a more painterly approach -- and NOT BE SCARED BY IT! He starts with the tools and the workflow, and progresses into a full-fledged painting, live, with all of us watching! His openness, encouragement, and humor are evident throughout. It was a great learning experience to see him resolving and refining the painting, and talking us through the process. Jeremy said, referring to all of the other painters who have gone before, whose work we can admire and learn from, &quot;We are all standing on each others shoulders&quot;. Well, Jeremy is sharing his broad shoulders for all of us to stand upon! Thank you Jeremy &amp; CL!!</p>
  • Excellent class, really loved watching and learning from Jeremy, only down side is the bonus material of a membership to Jeremy's Paint Box site and Creative Live ignoring my emails about my disappointment, so when you order this class, do not get your hope to high for the bonus material, other than that, Jeremy is a great teacher and his style of teaching is brilliant, lovely and pleasant to watch, highly recommended!
  • <p>Just finished watching the course and I have to say it&#39;s the best investment I have made on the creative live website. If you don&#39;t know if you should buy it ,I can tell you right now I was in your shoes and I am so glad I did. Jeremy is an excellent instructor and a very talented painter . Corel painter software is overwhelming but after this course I have the tools to take what I have learned and not only not be intimidated but ready to create some beautiful art. Creative live bring Jeremy back so he can go in depth in the advanced settings , i would surely purchase that course also.</p>
