"Meeta is an amazing artist and an even more amazing teacher. She is passionate about watercolor and most importantly she is passionate about her students..and truthfully goes beyond to ensure her students understands, believes..and practices. Practice, practice and more practice she helps you work through mistakes, guides through correcting them.
I thoroughly enjoy my time with Meeta, even when she challenges me. Meeta goes through all aspects of watercolor, paints, paper, watercolor techniques (too many to mention here). One suggestion is to buy here book, it is like a bible for watercolor, I am reading it for the second time after going through her course.
I have participated in a 3-day workshop and participated in the 6-week course both were challenging, at times frustrating (due to my on phobia’s about color and color mixing), but extremely rewarding. All I need to do is put in the time. If you put in the time and effort you will be successful and you will be an advanced watercolor artist.
Thank you Meeta for your passion, your drive, determination and your dedication to this art medium, that I love. If you are on the fence about taking this class…DON’T BE..JUST DO IT…you won't regret it."

"Mastering Watercolor Realism online course has been a unique experience! With a wonderful and complete content and very well directed by advanced artist Meeta Dani, it covered all I needed to become an advanced artist myself. From the very first steps of color theory all the way to advanced techniques and with special attention on correcting mistakes on all stages of painting, makes watercolor a very forgiving and easy medium to work with. I highly recommend taking this course to all beginner to intermediate artists.
I only began painting in watercolor this year, and in fact the only other watercolor painting I had done previously was during a long-weekend course hosted by Meeta in the spring of 2019.
So the painting I did during the 6-week course was the second one I had ever done. Anything I achieved in that painting is entirely due to Meeta’s teaching methods and her tireless dedication to her students’ success.
Meeta was generous with both her time and her knowledge, and I found her instruction, and her explanation of watercolor technique, to be clear and easy to understand. Also, no question was too much trouble for her to answer.
Meeta can be tough (as she would be the first to admit!) but only because she knows that her students can succeed if they stick with the course. And she has such an infectious sense of humor that you cannot fault her for keeping her students focused and committed to doing their very best, and never giving up.
Meeta does more than teach watercolor painting. She also includes with her instruction the understanding that the course is simply one example of the challenges everyone faces in life, and learning how to paint with watercolor will help you learn how to overcome other challenges you meet.
This is a critical part of her teaching method, and I found it empathetic and humane.
Meeta says that painting watercolors is not something that only a gifted few can do, and that given the correct instruction and the attitude to succeed, anyone can learn how to do it. My experience shows that she is right.
Meeta is a great artist and an equally great teacher. i would not hesitate to recommend her courses to anyone from a complete beginner, to an intermediate artist and to an advanced artist.
She knows how to paint beautiful realistic watercolors, and she knows how to teach that skill and to encourage her students to achieve their potential."
Mastering watercolor realism is probably 'the best' course for learning watercolors. The content in the course is pure gold. Meeta is a wonderful teacher and an artist, which is a very very rare combination. The lessons in Mastering Watercolor Realism course are very structured. Seriously, when I say lessons are structured, it is absolutely perfect. Right from how watercolor paints are manufactured to how to paint diligently, the techniques, everything will be taught in very detailed manner. The best thing about this course was that I found Meeta's advice very life changing. I had a huge mental block for painting because of my very bad results with watercolors in the last. Meeta kept encouraging us, she kept reassuring us that it's important to keep trying. This course is a journey. Meeta helps and encourages us to take baby steps towards our passion. Trust me when we take our baby steps in art we need a mentor to encourage us, to teach us the right techniques and to monitor our progress...and Meeta is the best mentor out there. Just join this course if you are serious about art. Trust me I am a person who has attended a lot of classes and workshops but nothing beats the quantity of content of this course and this is the only course that made me start and complete an actual painting.
