2.0 out of 5 stars Slow but Solid, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drawing - An Introduction [DVD] (DVD)
Not being an artist I don't know whether the information in this DVD is sound or not. However, given her academic position at Wimbledon, I imagine the presenter and artist know what she is talking about.

The pace of the DVD is very slow. This puts it at a disadvantage in a modern world where we have all been used to quick and instant things where someone like Rolf Harris has polished off a drawing in a few minutes.

But I guess the world of drawing is a place where we have to learn to 'sit and stare'. This lady slowly contemplates her paper, pencil, easel, model, standing position and proportions of her model with her pupil. As her portrait appears on canvas the artist admits her problems and failings in a very human way. None of it is very exciting stuff, unfortunately. At the end of the session she has an impressionistic drawing of her model which I think is rather solid and beautiful. I bought this this DVD for my 14 year old daughter to help her with art at school but I know she will be bored with it.
