As I go to an Art Class every Wednesday, this book was recommended to me when I first started going. I have been trying to get this for four years with no success, so to obtain it from Amazon is brilliant! It gives basic help, and how to use different types of paint and brushes to achieve effects on pictures. It also explains it simply, and gives excellent advice. Thanks!
The book is very good and full of useful information. Unfortunately one section is in a foreign language, perhaps Hungarian or something like that. It is obviously a major typo from new which no one expected to be there. As it is a second hand item I decided to keep it and not draw attention to it. It does not subtract from its usefulness in any way.
