‘Art Classes For Everyone’ with Phelim Donfield.
DVD 1 - Oils

Please note last date for purchases to be sent by post before Christmas is 17th December.  You can purchase your DVD and arrange to collect it in the school up to and including 22nd December.

'Art Classes for Everyone' is the essential step-by-step guide to developing your drawing and painting skills and techniques. This three hour, two-disc set is the first in a new series of DVDs which form a structured, hands-on and real-time course that caters for all levels of ability from beginner to advanced painters.

I have a complete 12 video set covering all types of painting and lots of single videos and even books by the score but Phelim Donfield's DVD leaves them all for dead. I learned so much in just over 3 hours and 12 minutes (I had to set it up and get my mug of tea) that I'm rearing to get back to my own class and show off my new skills. I usually do a sepia block in but having the canvas fully blocked in is just fantastic. See, spending that much money... was money well spent.
