Natalia’s voice is crystal clear and smooth flowing, relaxed and at times humorous as the class proceeds. Her pace is neither too fast nor too slow and is well synched to her workflow. Her workflow is easy to follow – there is no accelerated portion – the kind where everything is sped up to the point where you cannot visually follow or absorb the content.
Natalia never once uses a tablet, demonstrating that high quality retouching can be done with a mouse.
