"Once again, great teacher, clear explanations, good examples and analogies!"
"Wow. I thought his other two videos were great, and so is this one. Again, he provides lots of useful information - but watching him build the color swatches and the two small demos from "color shapes" was extremely helpful. His way of simplifying the landscape by first designing a roadmap, then identifying the basic shapes, and placing them in space by using color, really helps in creating beautiful and believable paintings without struggling."
"Loved the color chip exercises! They were a challenge that made me practice my color mixing skills for value, intensity, and hue, and offer no end to the amount of times they can be repeated. Also, watching Ian talk through his paintings was eye opening. He's such a good speaker and teacher, and doesn't miss a chance to further our understanding of painting a believable landscape. One of the better videos for the beginning landscape painter...just excellent!f"
"Ian Roberts is a great teacher. This is not an overview of color in general, but shows how to apply color to painting. The exercises he recommends are very helpful. I highly recommend all of Ian Roberts' videos."
"This is packed with really useful information for the serious beginner or intermediate painter who wishes to improve their work quickly. Sometimes it's good for more advanced painters to go back to the basics. I plan to watch this several times."
