This video is even more comprehensive than the first, much more down to business. Robert’s focus is on really breaking down the fundamentals for the viewer, the ones many teachers tend to gloss over or skip altogether. He also gets into the nuances of handling the brush and executing and recognizing the master-stroke. There’s a section on what to do when you get into a drawing jam. 

In this video there is more explanation about the advantages of mixing and using the Power Palette.


Other BONUS FEATURES allow the viewer to take in as much or as little information as they are ready to hear, when they are ready to hear it. For instance, Robert has packed everything he knows about a successful portrait career into the bonus feature "Being a professional portrait artist today." Beginner and advanced students will come away with renewed confidence and a practical, step-by-step approach for completing a portrait after viewing the video.
