Art School on DVD


In Art School on DVD I intend to offer the best instruction I can find or produce on the subjects I believe are essential to the development of you, the aspiring artist.

Every DVD has to be well taught and offer good value for the price.

That is my promise to you.


Mastering Color

Anyone can slap paint on a piece of paper or canvas, but applying the RIGHT COLOR is what separates the beginner from the experienced artist.

And finding an experienced artist to effectively teach you about color is critically important.

In Mastering Color, New Zealand artist Richard Robinson has produced an excellent DVD that teaches you the essentials of understanding and using color.

Robert Genn, one of Canada's most successful fine artists, said this about Mastering Color to the subscribers of his "Twice Weekly Letters":

"Understanding colour is illusive, and handling it properly has to be learned. There are just too many defaults in the old brain to get colour right on the first go.

That's why I was pleased to see Richard Robinson of Ruakaka, New Zealand, has prepared an excellent video called Mastering Colour.

With candour and clarity this young painter has summed up in 125 minutes (plus printable lesson notes) the essentials of colour theory and practice: seeing and describing colour, colour mixing and manipulation, colour harmony and light effects.

Particularly valuable is the difficult-to-master understanding of how adjacent colours affect one another. As well as answering many oft-asked questions, Richard aptly describes the jumpable chasm between amateur and professional colour.

I don't often recommend products in these letters, but this is a good one."

I am proud to include this excellent DVD in my Art School on DVD curriculum. I think it is an essential step on the path to becoming the artist you dream of being. Click here to learn more...
