As it was my birthday last week I treated myself to some new instruction DVDs. I’ve sadly exhausted Charles Reid and Joseph Zbukvic but I noticed recently that Iain Stewart had released some new titles on
. This is the demo in the landscape one. I wasn’t sure about his teaching style to begin with but he has grown on me. The thing you need in an instructional DVD is not the mechanics of what is going on e.g. ‘Now I’m going to paint an ultramarine wash’ ‘Now we’re going to paint the leaves’. What is really useful is the why and how they solve problems. Iain is very good at this. Even though each DVD only has one demo he goes through a lot of techniques and I enjoyed painting along.
Here’s his version (I made some changes to mine).
