Artists hands in the way and covered up all of the painting. I wish I had not bought it. Useless

Bad camera view = bad instructional video
~ StudentOfLife

I was hoping to get a lot more out of this video than I did. The video camera was obviously put on a tri-pod behind the artist and all you could view throughout the entire video is the back of his hand. I wanted to see brush to paper to see his technique but sadly, did not. There were no close-ups or zoom ins, just a still camera.

The artist was fairly quiet throughout the video and when he did explain what he was doing I couldn't see it because his hand was in the way. I cannot recommend you spend your money on this video. You would do just as well to look at a picture and try to figure it out on your own. The audio was mediocre, but I had a bit of trouble understanding his words but that must be our language differences.

Judging from the few videos I've viewed on Mindbites so far, I feel this video should be re-done by a more professional cameraman.

Excellent, easy to follow instruction.
