  1. dramatic powerful review by Mary on 12/19/2016

    He makes you feel you are right there

  2. Excellent instructional video, pleasant and easy to follow. review by Pierre from France on 2/1/2015

    Beside being a great artist, Wilson Bickford is a very pleasant and efficient teacher. Oil painting with a knife may be frightening for a beginner, at first. But with Wilson, everything becomes easy and simple, and the result is terrific ! I live in France, and I could download this excellent quality video within a few minutes, without any problem. That is a product I would recommend to anyone wishing to get familiar with "fun and fast" knife painting !
