Lots Of Details...

Well it looks like creating a painting is not spontaneous. It takes planning. I like his references to history and old masters.

Excellent learning experience

This is a superb class, so good that I intent to watch it again from beginning to end. I'm a watercolor realist who would like to paint similar realism in oil, so the class was exactly the right thing for me. The instructor communicates well and is very informative. The level of complexity of his painting is appropriate, and offers the student instruction in different textures and techniques. Highly recommended.
