This is an attractive, appealing painting, your delivery is clear & calm & you seem relaxed & comfortable on-camera. The clip is clearly filmed, well-lit has good sound & is well-edited & produced. Contrary to other comments, I did not find the music obtrusive at all, but it never hurts to keep music quieter when you are a softly-spoken presenter, I suppose. While the tutorial is mostly well-guided & explained, a couple of things make me uncertain who your target audience is; some things make this too complex for a beginner (e.g. the awesome feather stippling effect might've been better simplified to a flat 2D effect for beginners, as you said "watch closely how I do this" & then without a description, you sped up the footage too fast for them to watch closely. Also too many starting colours & the mixing that comes with that), & other things make it odd practice for a more experienced painter (no ground or underpainting to give depth & no mention of how to keep the colours cohesive throughout a painting & again, too many separate starting colours.) Have a look at The Art Sherpa, Angela Anderson Fine Art, Painting with Jane & Lachri Fine Art for how they aim for their particular audiences & you'll see some differences that might help. I think you've done really well & I've subscribed because I'm sure you've got some amazing stuff still to come, once you define the audience you're aiming for & what "Art Simplified" means to you. I look forward to seeing it, best of luck. December 4, 2017 at 8:20 am Drew Wuu Log in to Reply Where can I find the reference image?
