What about supplies?

We recommend using Dylan's color palette as the pigments are set up and arranged in a specific order to use complementary colors to create beautiful watercolor paintings. Many hours and cost went into testing many pigments and brands to achieve perfect compliments along with superb lightfastness. Most of Dylan's pigments are also transparent colors for that beautiful translucent look. Dylan recommends 640 gsm cold press watercolor paper for most of his paintings as he uses a lot of water, he sometimes uses 300 gsm for Plein air or quick studies. These must be single sheets and not blocks as the quality of the paper is very important. Please refer to his videos under "Before You Begin- Recommended Materials". On each of the class videos you will find the supply list.

PLAYBACK QUESTIONS

My video does not playback smoothly. How can I fix this?

Video playback depends on several factors. To improve your playback experience, make sure you have a fast, stable internet connection. We recommend using the most recent version of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. You may experience playback issues with outdated devices and browsers.


Can I watch videos using Chromecast and AirPlay?

Yes!  Both Chromecast and Airplay are compatible with our site.  

To use Chromecast: Locate the Chromecast icon in the bottom right corner of the video you want to cast.  Click the icon and select the correct Chromecast from the pop-up in your browser.

To use AirPlay: Open the video on your apple device and click the AirPlay icon in the bottom left corner.


Can I watch videos on my TV without using an app?

Yes. By connecting your laptop directly to your TV with an HDMI cable, you will be able to watch videos from our site on your TV.


Can I watch videos on my phone or tablet without using an app?

Yes. Our website adapts to phone and tablet browsers so you can watch our content anywhere!


Which browsers are supported?

While we recommend using the latest version of Google Chrome, we also support Firefox and Safari browser released within the last five years.  You may experience playback issues when using an out of date browser or any version of Internet Explorer.


Why does the Autoplay not work?

There is an "AutoPlay" control just below and to the right of the video. That needs to be selected for the autoplay to work. If that doesn't solve the problem you might try using a different browser. 

Video limitations

1) Many browsers, particularly the most recent versions, automatically block videos from automatically playing, particularly ones with audio.

2) Some desktop or laptop browsers also automatically block videos from automatically playing or may automatically mute the audio.

3) Most mobile devices, including Apple iPhones, Apple iPads and many Android and Microsoft devices do not support the video autoplay feature so your video will not play automatically if a visitor is on one of these devices.

4) In some cases, even when the device and browser are compatible with autoplay, the video may not start playing immediately. Typically this is because the rest of the page assets are loading or the video file is still loading or buffering. In most cases, once enough of the page content or video clip has loaded to ensure smoother viewing, the video should begin playing. 

5) In most cases, devices or browsers that do not support autoplay do not, by extension, support looping video.
