Great Teacher--Misleading Cover Image
The teacher is GREAT. Don't get me wrong. She gives clear, concise directions on how to play with simple patterns and colors to create more complex designs. However, the cover image with the patterned and painted faces has NOTHING to do with the lesson and does not appear in the video at all. If I had purchased this video based on the description and the image, I would've been very disappointed. Not that the lesson wasn't informative, but it was not what was advertised. Also, it was very basic and I think would disappoint a more experienced artist. Review by Nicole (Posted on 8/8/2014)
Interesting how designs can be formed using simple shapes/strokes and building from that. I liked that she began with simple strokes and moved on. Shows as well that all you need are the three primary colors - red, yellow blue! It gave me great ideas for my journal pages. Review by Sharon (Posted on 5/25/2014)
