  1. Not as good as Michael's other videos review by George on 6/2/2017
    Rating

    I downloaded all three of Micheal's videos. I got a lot our of the landscapes vid and the cityscapes vid. The waterscapes left a lot to be desired. I wish he had spent some more time demonstrating how to sketch the boats in the scene. The reflections were also overdone in my opinion and the time could have been spent elsewhere.

    Micheal's Landscapes and CItyscapes videos are much better in my opinion and I would suggest you look at one of these as opposed to looking at the waterscapes.
