Excellent overview and tutorial about Peerless Watercolours
This videos is great value for money, and shows Jane demonstrating the watercolours in her wonderful style of working. It's easy to follow and very enjoyable. Review by Cindy (Posted on 12/2/2014)
Quick look at Peerless Watercolors
This lesson gives the viewer a good look at how Peerless watercolors work, the quality of the colors and the unique way in which the paints are packaged. It also shows how to use them to create a painterly watercolor portrait that gives the viewer the basics of how to shade creatively using these brilliant colors. The techniques could be used with any water color paint, but the colors would be different and the method of getting the paint onto the brush would be different.

For the viewer who is upset about which exact colors were used in the lesson--you know, you don't have to have or use the exact colors a teacher uses to learn from her. You don't have to copy her work exactly; just use a similar color.

A good lesson
Simple and easy to follow. Having used peerless I was more interested in the other materials but love the effect.
As for the above review Jane's extra peerless colours she developed are available separately on her site.

Really Disappointed
I had just bought all of the peerless colors so I was excited to get this art lesson since it covered portraits , so imagine my dismay when I discovered she was using her own colors she had developed with peerless. AND you can only get them in a big 49$ pack of tiny 2x2 swatches , all but her 5 I ALREADY have. Review by Nancy (Posted on 9/16/2014)
Awesome Lesson!
I love this lesson. It is very inspiring. Peerless Watercolors are awesome! I made my palate, and painted. The colors are beautiful. Thank you Jane for another great lesson! Review by Lisa (Posted on 9/11/2014)
