If You Think Fine Art Should be Dull and Stodgy, DO NOT VIEW THIS

"Thrilling mad Fine Art seascape painting"

"Like oil painting? Let's have some fun. You can do this too. Throw the paint around and get these results. Art is nothing if not wild and magical. Let's do it all together.

"Here's an invite into the inner sanctum of a professional artist's studio. It's not all pretty. We don't apologize for that - it's part of the thrill. Working with Fine Art Techniques and thrilling-mad creative energy, a masterpiece seascape painting is developed from start to finish. You see three month's work in 1.5 minutes...."

The video starts with the artist saying "This is an exercise in atmosphere...."

No doubt it is - but if you're hoping to learn how to create a painting like that - the clip is no more than a gargle at the fountain of knowledge.

And, so there's no mistake: this isn't some "art for art's sake" thing. The folks who put that clip together wouldn't mind a bit if you bought their DVD.

Still, it's one minute and 38 seconds of a lively fellow with an engaging British accent - and some pretty good background music. The painting's not hard to look at, either.
