Customer Reviews:
Helpful ,very clear and easy to follow. Great information on color , composition , use of the oil , texture etc. In just a few hours Erik Koeppel gives an insight in the philosophy of seeing of the Hudson River School . Great stuff !!

Sure, you can’t ask the artist questions with a video, but when you take a real life painting workshop you never get such close-up, in-depth instruction. Typically only a small portion of class time is dedicated to observation of the instructor painting. And, you can’t ask them to do it over and over again, or at a later date when you want a brush-up. I loved the field study, then the studio session, tying the full life-cycle together. I found all of the stories about the Hudson River painters sprinkled in to be very enjoyable as well. I feel the production crew did a great job of showing both the canvas and the palette. Mr. Koeppel did a fantastic job of explaining everything he was doing and his thought process. In general, I’m a huge fan of Streamline instructional videos. You really can’t beat the price, compared with any other form of art instruction. World class instruction for very reasonable prices.
