A bit disappointed really. I like Ken Davies' work and all but the $50 seemed a bit much for this video. A bit dry on the technique part that's mentioned in the sale. He explains his thinking process for a still life set up but what's missing is the step by step or start to finish of a painting or demonstration. There's no mention of a color palette set up or what size brushes he uses or for that matter what products he prefers to use. Think it's best to look up both his books online and you'll be saving a lot of money. Again, this video was much too expensive for what was in it.
