“I am really honoured to know artist Joe Dowden. He is my first teacher when I came to the UK to study art in 2011. I love his watercolor art, especially about the light and reflection of the water is really creativity. I have to say that I really love his art lessons and thanks for his enthusiasm and friendliness. I wish I can have an opportunity to attend Joe Dowden's class in the future.”
