- how embarassing! Review by Caroline
Stephen Quiller is a brilliant teacher and this video download is a total embarrassment to him and to anyone who buys it! F & W, I hope you read this because the quality is appalling!
I need to make it very clear that its not Stephen Quiller's fault that this is almost unwatchable. Its made with old technology, its an old video, and F & W should have the nous and the means to improve the quality of what is an excellent workshop, if one simply listens to it and ignores the visuals.
I bought this as part of a package on special, and this was the video I really wanted to see.
Not a happy Vegemite.

- Video Download - almost unwatchable Review by Virginia
First, the content of the video is outstanding - exactly what I was looking for. Master Stephen Quiller's presentation is engaging and informative. Reflective of his 35+ years of experience as a teacher and watermedia painter, it appears he teaches the craft needed to create a painting, not copy his style.
However, the small size of the video download (320x240) made it impossible to see his technique, as it was simply too small. Upsizing the window resulted in a severe, blurry, pixilated mess; again, I was unable to really see the details, even in the closeup shots. The video skipped in places, and once presented a black screen for about 4 seconds.
Although I will purchase additional art technique videos (especially Stephen Quiller's) I won't waste my money on a another video download. This was a costly learning experience - I should have waited for a DVD to arrive in the mail.
