I have never used oil paints and whilst my result is not perfect David’s suggestions, but also reassurances, that whatever happens is fine kept me going and I am quite pleased and definitely going to try something else.

Response from The Old Kennels:

Thank you Susan, not only the the kind review, but also for sharing your first very beautiful oil painting with us! You should be very proud of what you have achieved and I really hope you are inspired to keep going now! Davids next video Glorious Glazes is now also available to view!

A highly enjoyable video, David, thank you! I found the 'don't be precious' approach very liberating as it can be such a pitfall when painting. I also warmed to David's down to earth style of teaching, it has a meditative quality about it. Intuitive abstract landscape painting speaks to me so I look forward to more online painting videos by David.

Response from The Old Kennels:

Thank you Karen, what a lovely review, Davids next video Glorious Glazes is now also available to view!
Meditative and down to earth sums Davids style up very well!
