In his program, Dan supplies the photo's of some great still life set ups along with an on line video( and permanent copy on CD) . There are 10 lessons in his still life series and he also has a similar landscape series available. The lessons build on each other and get progressively more challenging.
This was number 8 of the series of 10 and it was definitely challenging. In hindsight, I wished I had done it on a bigger canvas. I could have used larger brushstrokes in describing each of the elements since there is a lot going on on this small canvas.
These classical dark style still lives are probably not my personal style, but they have been great training. Dan is an excellent and generous instructor who consistently provides spot on feedback. I have really enjoyed and learned a lot from his instruction and would highly recommend you check his programs out.
