This could just be the book you've been looking for. 11 July 2001
By Robert Reid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
There appears to be a dearth of Painter books about that treat instruction as thoroughly as this book does.
The book provides ALMOST everything I've been looking for ...
1. Introductory walk throughs of the drawer tools and their use.
2. Illustrated exercises that reinforce familiarity with the interface.
3. Extensive professional level projects that reveal the power of this unique program.
What it's lacking though is a section on adapting fine arts to the digital medium. i.e. drawing and painting examples. Granted, if one has a fine arts background, after the 'introduction' you can adeptly create your own art work in Painter. It would have been nice to have some step-by-step examples though.
Aside from that, the book is geared toward the graphic artist and the professional sample projects are excellent.
Bought this for my wife who is artistically inclined 12 Dec 2012
By H. Wm Rhea III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Bought this for my wife who is artistically inclined and she used it for a short time. She lost interest in illustrating digitally, but the book was a great help to her to master Painter 6.
