This one's a lot of fun and yes, you can follow along with any color medium you have at hand. I fooled around with oil pastels but could have done this just using Crayola crayons. Great color video. George took some difficult concepts and made them a lot simpler to understand with the way he demonstrated them - things I wish someone had explained to me when I was a kid going nuts banging my head on the wall trying to make watercolors do what color was supposed to do by theory!
