5.0 out of 5 stars Great teaching book for beginners.
This is a great book for beginners and one I shall keep going back to.
Paul Taggart ticks all the right boxes in his teaching methods - no boring lists or factual overload.
He deals with all the basic questions beginners ask with accompanying "artstrips" - cartoon-like illustrations to reinforce the answers. This is much easier to follow than text alone...

This is a great book for beginners and one I shall keep going back to.

He deals with all the basic questions beginners ask with accompanying "artstrips" - cartoon-like illustrations to reinforce the answers. This is much easier to follow than text alone.
There are exercises which enable you to try out various skills, each one leaving you with a finished product. Solutions to common problems are given in each section along with helpful tips and reminders.
Finally there are some step by step projects so you can put your new skills into practice.
The secondhand copy I bought via Tree Savers was in very good condition.

Superb informative guide to painting and drawing. As a beginner how to start off a painting is a challenge but with Paul showing how to use thumbnail sketches makes it seem less difficult and encourages getting on with it.
Tutorials and exercises are well documented and encourage participation to develop the techniques of your chosen discipline.

See comment on 'Acrylics from Scratch' - don't want to gild the lily. This, plus his teaching videos will serve you well.
