Really enjoyed Mr. Schaller's easy and relaxed teaching style. He's a wealth of knowledge and shares it generously and casually as he paints. I also love his looser style of painting and appreciate it more now that I know the planning that goes into it. I will definitely be trying his method of creating interesting shadows and light. I also want to comment on the really nice camera work. There was a nice balance of close ups and pan outs, and also appreciate the camera on his palette as he loads his brush. If in every art video the camera just followed the artist's brush like this one did, they'd be much improved. I think this is one of most well done art instruction videos I've watched, and I've seen dozens!
Enjoyed the painting. Thank a you.
Terrific video. Careful teacher with clear instruction.
