Instructional Videos - limited supply
These three instructional videos offer a comprehensive engagement with what Mr. Silverman feels are the fundamental requirements of your “paint box”. These are ways to refine your technical skills and simultaneously shape your aesthetic decisions– what you want to “say”– with these tools. None of the tapes will make the viewer an instant new artist, but Burt’s honest and sometimes provocative remarks will surely help spur that desired goal. The secret in all instructional tapes however is that repetition- like physical therapy- is the absolute implied and necessary component.
The Portrait of Jenny is virtually an uncut 3 1/2 hour video and therefore has elements of “watching grass grow”. This can be fast forwarded and then re-reviewed as your patience and instructional needs requires.
In the age of disappearing dvd recording devices, alas, like newspapers and books, we are are investigating the possibility of converting these videos to an electronic downloadable version.
We will keep you informed as this evolves.
