I purchased a couple of instructional DVDs from eBay a year ago. I finally watched one today entitled "Dramatic Lighting and Composition by Neil Boyle". Neil Boyle died about 4 years ago and this video was shot long before. It was markedly devoid of editing...it is just this wonderful, humorous, talented man talking a streak (without any break) about how he composed his paintings. Even though Mr. Boyle isn't any longer physically with us, I find it remarkable that I can feel as if I have spent some time with him today...learning some of his methods. He had a very wry wit and he was an outstanding artist. Later I'll watch the 2nd DVD and give a "review".
