“I had a chance on this rainy day to watch the DVD and read the lecture notes, and so on. Everything was clear and to the point, serious but entertaining, and highly instructive. In short, well done!”   Mark Gottsegen the author of Painter’s Handbook: Revised and Expanded

“The value range principle illustrated in the DVD gives completely different meaning to the preparatory drawing which made it easy to understand painting using transparent layers. It even changed the way I look at the work of the old masters – I can see the “layers” as they used them.”   Anatoly, Amazon Review.
