“Cathy has the ability to translate why an image “works” and one that doesn’t. To give you the confidence to play with watercolour and produce a piece that you can be proud of. She has opened up a whole new world to me by viewing the light and reflections. Cloud gazing takes on a whole new dimension. Thank you for your generosity Cathy. “
