Too many different colors from different companies Review by Ineke

Although Chris Saper is a very talented painter I am disappointed with the DVD as she uses so many different colors from various companies which are hard to get here in Australia. I had to learn to paint with a limited palette and have always found that an important skill to have. I had hoped that in this DVD colours would be made from the basic, well known colors. So it is difficult to learn to make all the skin tones particularly as I paint in water soluble oil which has a more limited color range.
