This is the first title in a new series from Search Press and you'd have to say that the basic premise is a good one. As Terry explains in his introduction, it's all too easy to find yourself with a pile of paper, a box of all the colours and every brush you might ever need and to be completely stuck for ideas. As a photographic magazine once responded to someone who listed a suitcase full of equipment and asked what else he needed to take really great pictures, "How about a couple of rolls of film?" It's not hard to see how this book grew out of the Ready to Paint series and, if it lives up to its manifesto, it's certainly the next logical step. There are outlines, but they're not tracings. What you don't get are any step-by-step demonstrations and that's something to celebrate. These are alright in their place, but they can get a bit pedestrian and sometimes you just think, "enough". Instead, each painting gets just a single spread, with the finished result on the right and some details pulled out on the left, with notes about the subject and explanations of the most important elements. There's also list of the colours used so that you can practise working with a simplified palette and developing your mixing skills.-Artbookreview.net --Artbookreview.net
