I was rather disappointed in this publication because there was so little instruction and no clear indication of how the rules could be broken . The illustratios of Shirley's paintings were however very good and I enjoyed looking at them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the effort of reading, 24 April 2014

Badly written- poor use of vocabulary. Not a serious exploration of the character or the bible story - who needs to know how many replica arks have been built in the USA?

2.0 out of 5 stars Print too small to read, 29 Mar 2014

This book does not translate into KIndle format as the graphs which illustrate the lace pattern are too small to read. Even with a magnifying glass it is not clear enough. It is therefore a waste of time and money to order this book

This ia a great book if you are interested in exploring "loose painting in watrecolour"
As it is by an American author some of the equipment is difficult to find in the UK however with some inventive searching among the cleaning product aisles of the supermaarket one should be able to find acceptable alternative

5.0 out of 5 stars Coloured pencil solutions, 22 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THis is an interesting book on using coloured pencils. You will learn a lot about how to blend colours and how to colour metal objects such as silver and brass.

At first I resisted the idea of tracing objects to colour but having completed some of the examples, I realise that it is a good way to learn about applying colour.
