It was a very good and clear introduction. I feel more confident in attempting my first painting now. There were only a couple of thing’s that weren’t fully detailed. I would also like to see the artists worktable table and palette as he was using it.

I think he has lots to teach but it is painfully slow to watch each stroke go here or there. Some sections need a bit of speed. While this is great for beginners, grreat, I am a professional mixed media artist so maybe, perhaps, there could be more challenges or hints to make me want to jump right in. I know much of what he is saying and would appreciate learning a bit more motivating ideas to try my first abstract?

I am really enjoying learning new techniques. The teacher makes it look simple and beautiful. Thank you.

Great tutor, but sometimes unprofessional. 1. He said that people can also use house paint (well, we can use it- but such art cannot be sold, because: Although latex house paint is the closest to acrylic paint, it is not archival quality and may compromise your painting over time (he didn't mention that in the course). Second issue: he said the paintings doesn't require to be varnished...and even when he decided to varnish he used mediums to varnish (instead of varnish). Quote from the producers: Our Matte Varnish and our Matte Medium have the same non-yellowing, flexible polymer base. The main difference is that the Matte Varnish is formulated to preserve paint film clarity, by using less matting agents in the formulation. Matte Medium can be applied as a final, non-removable top coat for acrylic paintings. Be aware, however, that the colors, especially darker values, will lose some visual intensity and clarity. Likewise, Matte Varnish may be mixed with the acrylic color, however, it will not reduce color sheen to the degree that Matte Medium will. I hope you understand my point of view... Thank you

Je voudrais pouvoir faire jouer la totalité du cours dun bout. Ne pas avoir à sélectionner chaque minute séparément.

Very disappointing and not at all what I expected. Too long spent on few uninspiring demos. I did not like any of his paintings. Nothing new in terms of basic techniques, too many irrelevant sections. Too commercial. Also very bad audio.
January 13, 2022
Even though I have a good idea on acrylics, still learning abstracts. From basic of abstracts to design to doing it practically. so far superb!

This is a helpful course. Always good to hear/see new strategies/techniques. Liking the different ways to begin a painting, e.g. starting with black lines and adding sections of color, while leaving some of the sections white.

gettings lots of great value from the course re application, where to or not to paint a shape & why, mixing on the canvas as opposed to off the canvas. Too many things to write.

Love the use of color and large size of paint brushes. Wish the camera showed him when he is putting paint on the brush.
October 29, 2021
I enjoyed this course. Lots of good information, tips on saving money on materials and great demonstrations.
October 23, 2021
I liked the way you paint - using feeling and freeform. I wasn't too interested in the computer work - but thats just me. All in all I thought it was a fun class.

Andy is practical and down to earth. I may not always like the finished paintings but I still love watching him paint them and talking about his methods. I love the informal way he teaches and the occasional tips and thrifty advice on saving pennies.
August 15, 2021
I wanted to learn more about what the artist sees in the finished paintings. What was his interpretation and why he thought they were good. I didnt expect the video's to be 6 years old and not in line with current trends.
September 23, 2020
Yes, very interesting and informative. Thank you Andy Morris for putting together a wonderful course. I love all your demo painting's that you have done. I have learned a lot. Thanks again.
