"...I think the video is terrific. I would compare it to an in-depth article in a magazine or the chapter of a book in the way it feels to take in the information and the condensation of material. Obviously, because there's so much in the episode, I'll view it again and again because I'm sure I'll pick up new things each time.
I'd also add that I'm a very experienced painter, and there was actually some new stuff here for me, especially about how to view a scene (not looking into shadows and light, etc.).
The pdf is also very helpful and really adds value to the package as a reference tool. Oh, and by the way, I liked the finished painting a lot. It really captures the feeling and spirit of the place. Anyway, I'll look forward to more.
All the best, Tom" U.S. More Painting Lesson Comments >
