5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have!, 8 Nov 2009
This book is full with enlightening information, from revealing anecdotes to technical tips. It doesn't go into any detail regarding basic artists tools, such as achieving correct proportion or anatomy, as it's particularly aimed at those who have had a fragmented art education, as I've experienced through intermittent private classes; reading books by Ruskin, Harold Speed, Robert Hale etc. Instead it takes you through the process of developing your ideas, giving you confidence with the process of creating a finished painting. So the knowledge you should already have gained from other sources is placed into a logical structure, whilst filling in gaps with information which is difficult to come by elsewhere. Highly recommended!
