Not for this beginner
on 3 April 2015
As I am an absolute beginner (and not a very good one at that) I found the "how to" section way beyond my level of competence. From the illustrations there is no doubt that Glyn Macey is a very talented artist. This book is perfect for the accomplished painter as he demonstrates innovative and challenging methods that will help produce high class work. If I was at that level of skill I would give the book 5 stars, but as I am judging it from a lower point of view, I have to rate it according to how it failed to help me.
