So I'm starting to learn to paint and am currently working with watercolor, gouache, and eventually acrylic. I wanted to go with oil tbh but I just don't have the cash to supply myself with the proper things nor are there any high school level classes around my area that teach oil, as opposed to acrylic which is pretty common. There was a lack of gouache demonstrations online so I figured it would be best to buy the Gnomon vids and wanted to know the opinions of those who have seen them already or other useful videos. I plan (hope?) to eventually get all three but am not sure as to the order.
Watercolor and Gouache Painting
Techniques of Syd Mead
I'm currently planning to get them in this order. Any guidance is appreciated
I can vouch for the Head Painting video it is fantastic
I have three of the Syd Mead videos and found them to be rather good. They're quite expensive, but you essentially get to watch over his shoulder as he goes from start to finish with commentary. I think them to be among the best video tutorials I have in my small collection. His working methods are very thorough.
Tiemens Gouache technique is very good.

This would be my Pleine Air blog
Thanks for the responses. So, all dvds are clearly worth the trouble. I think I'll get the Syd Mead vid first, mainly because I really like his work and finished look. Not sure about the last two, I'll probably base it on how much I learn from Syd's. Thanks again
If anyone wants to add anything else please do
I am not sure about their DVDs related painting with traditional medium. However I have tried many of their DVD s and I can even even say that I am a fan of them. Once you get one or two, you really want to get all of them. But its also up to you as well. I suppose there are people who can not learn art from DVD s.
