I'm afraid that one was a major step backward, the reverse side is now relegated to being a test page for watercolours. See....something positive comes out of even the most dire disasters!  ;D

Wouldn't that be known as Recyclable or Going Green or something?  :2funny:

I like the longer version.  Is it possible to get close-ups instead of one steady distance camera shot?

 :oops: I seem to have missed a few posts back there. So...you want a post mortem huh? First let me say this... 'I vote to  :ban: all of my ugly, disaster pictures.' Just my opinion. Besides, it looks like it already suffered a post mortem.  :o
Just for comparison I'm including the other side with my w/c test patches. Personally... I think its better! ;D

I like the longer version better.   O0

Nolan and Dennis, you give such thorough explanations of each step you make in your demonstrations. 

It's such a great learning experience.  Every minute is valuable.

Hi Dennis and Nolan, well I too like the longer version, BUT in an area where you are blocking in I could see you speeding up but then returning to real time.   So I guess I would vote for a combo with the majority being in 'real time'

I don't want anything speeded up or shortened. I want to see all the details you're willing to share with us no matter how long it takes.
One of the biggest complaints I have with YouTube is those fast painting lessons. Can't learn or see anything with that style of teaching.
That's my two cents...  O0

When I've created lessons on my Youtube channel, I've been asked many times to explain and show every little detail. When I don't, I end up with many comments and requests.
I try to accommodate every learner ability and age.
The beauty of Youtube is, people can fast forward, pause, rewind and repeat continuously. I've learned that video teaching and learning is as near to the real thing as possible but, still not as good as the reality of actually being there in person. For this reason, it's paramount that my details are conveyed and explained even more, step by step in a methodical manner and, by generally assuming no previous knowledge of recipient.
If I decided to do a edited recording that removed boring aspects, etc. I'd still leave access to the original. That way I cater for differing requirements. Ultimately, in a fast paced, 'sexed up', video conditioned society, I'll never please everyone and, my deleting nasty negative comments stand testament to that! lol!  :yippee:
