    My watercolor instructor is now starting a zoom watercolor class. I helping her some with the technology since I’m doing an online college class due to the virus. One question how you do get to present the picture of painting the watercolor from above? What type of camera do you have and how do you mount it?

      Tell her to get in touch.
