I very much like Mr Robert's teaching style - straight forward, clear, concise. His focus in the video is hue, value and intensity and the practicing to get it right. Yes, he does demos, but they are for illustrating the focus of the video and what we need to learn/review, rather than impressing us with his masterful painting capabilities.
Repeatedly, he compares the practice of a musician working with scales, to an artist working with color studies. Study tools/excercises are included in the video.
