5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting approach 6 May 2013
By MJS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a thick book (700 pages). Got it from the library and just ordered a copy. It covers 4 kinds of "painting" - oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. What I like about it is that it has a bit more technique than a lot of other books. They actually tell you how to do things. More practical than a lot of similar one topic books. Each of the 4 sections includes several step by step examples, including some on making a painting like a well-known artist - Degas, or whatever. Recommended.
