    I found the classes very informative and easy to understand. I just started drawing and my idea was to draw trees. I can do that now but not great. I decided to learn how to do landscapes. That is why I took this class. He is great.

    I have not completed the whole course. I am a returning student and I am sure I will be happy with this course like I did with all previous classes. Nolan is a good instructor and I like the way he does not rush through his class.

    I’ve only just purchased this course and have today completed the section on drawing trees, which I throughly enjoyed. Dennis is an excellent tutor whose explanations make so much sense. The fact that the actual sketches are shown in real time, makes the lessons very easy to follow.

    Excellent step by step tutorials. Builds your skills in small increments and gets you to a reasonalbe level of competence by the end. With the basics in place all you need is to practice.

    Excellent class. Dennis is a great instructor and made the classes easy to follow. I can now use what I learned in my own sketches.

    Great instructor. I highly recommend this course. Mr. Clark is a wealth of information and you can tell he has a real mastery of drawing. When he demonstrates a drawing, he explains what he is doing, why he does it and how to do it. I am new to drawing and through his direction, I now have a working knowledge of shading, perspective and balance when drawing landscapes. How fun!

    Wonderful tutorial! I really enjoy Dennis’ style of teaching – it’s as if we are sitting down over a cup of coffee and he is teaching me various landscape techniques. I look forward to enrolling in more classes!

    Purchased this course hoping to learn a little more. I do have to say that I did learn a lot but, although I find that looking at Dennis painting his definitely learning experience on its own, however, was hoping to get tips, advice, do’s and don’ts which we do not get much of.

    good solid info

  14. Tiff (verified owner)

    Not enough information on how to actually make the marks. Would also be nice to draw from a picture instead of imagination. Not enough explanation on why. Eg how do you know how big to make shadows?

    I enjoyed this class very much and look forward to learning much more.

    Very helpful. One note for improvement: Sometimes when the teacher was drawing, it was off camera a bit. So I couldn’t see what he was doing.
