    I love to do this Bubbles project. The videos are very well prepared, it is like if I am actually watching Gaby personally. I really love the structure of the videos and I can pick up my lesson where I left it.

    I highly recommend this project to anyone who want to paint something really out of the ordinary and learn the many techniques involved in this project.

    Thank you Gaby for Bubbles, I am in love with it!

    I have not totally finished Bubbles yet, but I am having a great time. I love the project, the videos are great, plus the printed material helps me to check back to make sure I have completed everything and to read ahead of the videos to see what is coming next. I really reccommend this project to all levels. The colors are wonderful and I think that I have finally been able to understand the color blending method. This is going into my husband's new fish room! Thanks Gabby!

    Temperature, that is. Ms Hunter uses this fun lesson to really drive home color tempature. She is an excellent teacher. She responded quickly to all my questions. I simply loved painting Bubbles. The colors are phenomenal. The photos just don't do it justice.
