  1. This is THE indispensable watercolor tutorial review by Arnold on 4/4/2017
    Rating

    I have taken several of Michael Reardon's plein air watercolor workshops. In addition to being a stunningly gifted artist Michael is a terrific teacher. One looks at Michael's work and wonders "How the heck does he DO that?" This DVD shows you exactly how. Michael breaks it all down, taking you through the creation of a painting step by step -- with a running commentary on the colors, brushes and sequence of wet-in-wet washes as he proceeds, as he likes to say: "Starting at the top and when you get to the bottom you are finished!" Now mind you, this DVD won't give you Michael's decades of practice, precise brush mastery, draughtsmanship, sure eye for composition or his background as an architect and architectural illustrator -- all of which enable him, apparently effortlessly, with a few brush flicks and a quick wash, to make physical objects fully present in space, air and light. But it will give you as much as a master can give an apprentice short of leaning over your shoulder saying "More Quinacridone Burnt Scarlet! HERE! NOW!"
