- I thought it was GREAT! Review by Pat
I am not a professional so this DVD was great. I think even a pro should get a lot of information. Yes, I would have liked a little painting but sure feel I got my money's worth and was inspired to buy an actual demonstration DVD. Can't wait to try a portrait now and select the hues as he did. What FUN! Thanks,

- So helpful!, I bought it! Review by Narval7
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! :)

- Not quite what I was expecting... Review by Brandi
Going to try this again as it logged me out after writing this the first time....
I have to admit I was a little disappointed in this workshop. I suppose I was expecting more painting to be shown, rather than strictly color theory and color selection for the skin types.
I'm an avid portrait pastelist and I greatly admire Alain Picard's work. His paintings are beautiful and vibrant; I was thrilled to see a video about *painting* skin tones. Instead, what I got was an hour and a half of color selection for the skin types. While informative, it wasn't the use of the color as I was hoping to see. I love using bright, vibrant colors that may be a bit unconventional (like the blues and greens shown in the piece on the cover of the workshop.) I had been hoping for more of that sort of incorporation than strictly color selection.
I still gave three stars as Alain Picard is an excellent artist and instructor. I think it's more an issue with the titling of the workshop than the content itself.
