The video is packed with lots of concepts which are valuable. However, it was disappointing to me that the painting suddenly jumped from 50% finished to 90% finished of the head. What happened in between? I viewed the Burton Silverman DVD and to me that gives me a better presentation of how the artist work from beginning to finish. I wouldn't mind paying more for a longer video if the other stages were presented. Perhaps this video is for really advanced artists who do not need to see all the steps.

Like David, the first time I picked up his book "Oil Painting Secrets from a Master" I knew I found a master I could follow. I own 5 of Davids videos and this one like the others will teach you to paint chiaroscuro (light and dark). Davids way of teaching is very solid and easy to grasp.

Definetly alot of information and worth purchasing.
On the cons side it would have been nice to actually see him finish the painting instead of bring it to 80./. Complete then show another painting which was the one printed on the box.
Either way this man has a unique approach and I did learn from it.
