I have always drawn and painted with watercolour, but never used acrylics before. This book is great if you are new to acrylic painting and full of top tips and explanations. Its well written and has a step by step approach to techniques and methods. It shows how to form a picture, start painting and continue in easy to follow diagrams and colour photo's. A very good book for starters.
Having been a bit of a doodler and scribbler of a few sorts of animals, I decided to get somebackground information on various techniques and basically, what features to look for when drawing animals. This book is full of brilliant tips, some simple, some I hadn't ever thought of. It doesn't take you though step by step how to draw a dog for example, but explains what you should look for and notice about the subject you are attempting to draw. There is a good section on cartooning in the back of the book and some nice illustrations. All round, a good buy.
