Lesson Discussion

  1. Thanks. The instructions are great. Request your guidance to transfer images on watercolour paper where the reference photograph either larger or smaller?

  2. when I click on photo reference I expect to get the portrait pic, instead i get a black blank screen on my iMac.
    I need to get the picture so that I can print it. Then I can follow your instructions on how to transfer the picture
    to WC Paper. Help!!
