3.0 out of 5 stars Too many techniques .. 14 Jun 2010
By Sue B.
This book seemed to be trying to pack too much into too little a space - pencils, pastels, oil paints, water colours and acrylics as well as different techniques - all in 128 pages!
A number of the step by step projects are repeated in Watercolours (Beginner's Guides), so I wouldn't recommend buying both.

I love the way this book takes you step by step from the beginning to the end of an art project. It doesn't matter what type of art project, this book has great information about material to use - paper and other art supplies.
