Pros and cons of the dvd Review by Audrey
Rating

I was a little disappointed. I thought there would be instruction on actual portrait painting and I also don't know how to select my colours as Alain does not say which colour or type of pastel he is using. The colour wheel has been hugely helpful to me and his different skin tone colours are helping me with my other media.

Happy with it! Review by Carrie

I am a painter and pencil artist. I haven't used pastels in years but when I saw the preview of this DVD I knew I had to get it. I paint and sketch Portraits a lot. It is a part of my income. When watching this DVD I can take his technique of color and apply it when using my paints and pencils. I feel this DVD would benefit portrait artist whether you use pencil or paint. Thinking of pulling out my pastels and buying another DVD of Alain Picard.
