Customer Reviews

I really enjoyed this teaching dvd. I think Mr. Picard is a very precise, clear and friendly teacher. His explanations are easy to understand and very insightful. I purchased all of his dvds and I learned a lot! I learned more than I learned in my local art class. Fabulous dvd. Don't pass his dvds up! - Martha

The video really helped me get my skin colors selected, and I just did things in the order that you talked about, and it went much faster! - Janice

A new way to analyse color in pastel. I really liked this video, Picard is a very good teacher. - Martine

I saw this video on Artist Network. Alain Picard thought of a nice method to clarify the choice of skintones. It's better to select our palette before painting (for color harmony) and Picard shows us how to do it wonderfully! It's original, a new way to teach how to treat skintones. We want to see him paint a whole portrait? Do like me, buy all the series! :)
