Re: Acrylic DVD tutorials?

Jerry's artorama has a whole series of free videos. Also, there are a load of them on You Tube. Just enter acrylic painting. I have at least 10 videos on there. Lots of good information in quick bites.

Re: Acrylic DVD tutorials?

If you want a free two hour Yarnell internet video just search under "Sedona Chasms by Jerry Yarnell." He is an excellent teacher and there is a lot to be learned about acrylic methods by watching an entire painting like this one.
Many of his videos are short but this is a full length teaching series of 11 videos.

Re: Acrylic DVD tutorials?

Hi,

While not DVDs, paintbasket.com has a section called Paint Basket TV.

The first few are free then it is a pay per lesson deal. $9 if you sign up for the live presentation, then you can watch the replays online forever. If you don't sign up for the live presentation, the price jumps to $14.

The lessons last about 2 hours each. The instruction is VERY detailed, yet explained in a very straight forward manner.

I have the Bob Davies DVDs (I bought them before discovering Paint Basket and am kicking myself at the waste of money) and they are okay, but only cover landscapes and I found them a little vague/brief at times.

The Paint Basket guys have so far covered some flowers, portraits, sunsets, still lifes - all up there are 30.

Also the site has an extremely active, thoughtful and supportive Forum section, on which both tutors (father and son run the business) give excellent feedback. It's worth signing up as a member, just to gain access to the Forum.

Sign up for the free, How to Create the Perfect Painting. Some really good pointers for beginners to get off on the right foot.

Hope that helps.

Batman.

Re: Acrylic DVD tutorials?

I have to agree with Imbatman here.

I joined Paint Basket in late November last year. I can not believe the progress I am making. Taking from someone who has never painted before and now I actually have orders from paying customers and need to do a set of works for a show end of July.

They are an excellent site with great tutors. I really recommend them.

Happy painting.

Maryna

I haven't bothered to read the rest of the thread after the post of your's that I'm quoting, but .... I did see today on a complaints website that there is a big family feud going on between Jerry and his family. I was going to purchase a dvd off Jerry's website, but now I'm hesitant.

Thank you very much. I'd just like to say that you unknowingly helped a lurker last night. I have watched it through and feel a lot more confident about painting with acrylic. I agree that there is nothing like watching a complete video of someone who knows what they're doing when it comes to painting.
