I thought I would share a site with you that I discovered a couple of weeks ago. You can search by art technique to find instructional videos that can be rented rather than purchased. You pay by the number of days that you want access... ie.. 3 days for $10.95 and you view the video online for that period of time.
If you're looking for inspiration it's a great place to wander around as they give you a synopsis of each of the videos in advance. I have only rented one so far, the Jacqueline Sullivan video on acrylic painting with textures and metallics. If you want to do something different/relaxing and fun I recommend hers.
The site is Art Workshops TV
Have fun...and I hope you'll let me know which you may have rented and how you liked it.
