Testimonials by Mastering Watercolor Realism course participants

“What a fantastic experience to learn from an extraordinarily watercolor expert. Meeta gave us so many new skills, encouragement and knowledge. I was so very happy to have taken part in her online course 'Mastering Watercolor Realism' and look forward to developing my own skills in the future.”

"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. 

Thank you very much Meeta for sharing your knowledge with us, it has made a world of difference in my way of painting realistic watercolors."

" Hi I am Ananya Bhattacharjee residing in Bangalore, India and HR by profession 
Since my childhood I had a burning desire to do something which involves a lot of creativity and painting was something that I loved the most. As a child, I would participate in small competitions which would keep me motivated to keep painting.
I wanted to pursue painting as full time career but couldn't pursue it in long run because being independent, earning and supporting my family was the utmost priority and in India it's difficult to earn as an artist. 
 
It was only after many years of struggle working at a corporate function I finally realized that I should do something about my passion. When I took the very first step to research a subject that I would draw and paint I  
came across realistic watercolor paintings by Meeta on facebook which blew my mind away. Soon after I finished my first watercolor painting Meeta announced this 6 weeks online course to master watercolorrealism. I wasn't very confident if it actually would work taking an online class while your tutor and you are miles away. Art doesn't work that way I thought to myself.
After attending Meeta's webinar I decided it's now or never.  I have to make a decision , take a chance in life to change my future. That is when I took the risk of giving this course a try.
Meeta's support , knowledge, positive attitude , 100% assurance that it is possible if I put in my 100 % dedication and commitment
Finally here I am, looking at the first realistic watercolor painting that I painted under her guidance. It's such a shocker what you can do if you give yourself a chance, take risks in life to follow your passion and be under right guidance.
I can rightfully say I am under good hands now.
Thank you so much Meeta that you saw the potential in me, for always motivating and pushing me really really hard, treating me like your own to achieve what I have achieved after 6 weeks of this course. What could have taken me years to figure out , learn and master I could do in 6 weeks. Your guidance and teachings  has given me the momentum  that I needed to keep going. I feel lucky and proud to be your student Meeta :) "

"I participated in Meeta Dani’s May-June 2019 6-week course, Mastering Watercolor Realism.
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."

"When I started the course I was having zero knowledge of fundamentals of watercolor. I had fear, anxiety, lots of misconceptions and lack of clarity. Meeta’s teaching style was simple, accurate, thorough, in depth and very easy to follow by first timers like me. Meeta took out our fears and her constant push gave us courage to begin the complex project. Her dedication towards every  student is just amazing. She gave her 100% to all the students making sure none was lacking behind. She really became our backbone throughout the project. Thought we had challenges but she has taught us to tackle it with so much ease. I absolutely admire her faith in all her students. Meeta, you are genuinely beautiful person inside out. Honest towards your work and very humble. Thank you for taking this course and teaching online course. It gave opportunity to far away students to learn watercolor at their own time and pace right from their home. 
I absolutely loved learning from Meeta throughout the course. It did not feel like she was the teacher and we were the students. It was more like we were learning from our best friend. I absolutely recommend Meeta Dani’s class to every watercolor enthusiast."

"I can say that Meeta's course was an answered prayer to me. I've been looking for a teacher both virtually and in my country. I have tried to reach out to some artists who lives near my place if they conduct work shops but they were unavailable at that time.
I wanted to grow as an artist, I wanted to master and understand the medium. And I'm honored to have Meeta as my teacher.  
Meeta is passionate, dedicated and effective teacher! I tried to teach myself through YouTube and some books but it's really different when you are guided by an experienced and international artist. She's very thorough and most of all, encouraging. 
I just started painting last Sept 2018, that's 8 months ago. My friends and family members told me that I gained tremendous growth by looking at my last painting - "Ripples on water." Most of them told me, I was able to capture the ripples realistically. If a beginner like me can do it, you can too! 
One more thing I like about this course, she taught us meditation. Meditation while painting- and that was the best remedy for my broken soul. This course didn't just upgrade my skills but also allowed me to heal. "
