Excellent Book On Tips
on 28 July 2008
This is advertised as a paperback, however when mine came it was a hardback in a ring binder. As a ringbinder it means that you can open the booka nd leave it open at the page you are looking at. There are lots of tips from using washes to how to paint a window. The tips are brief and don't go into lots of detail so if you want a lesson, this book is not for you. However, if you have some of the basics already then this book will help you if you are a little stuck. It is a handy size and can quite easily be store in a handbag/small bag - great if you are carrying it around to a class or painting out of doors.
I must admit I am a little biased as I love Terry Harrison's work, just the sort of things I like to paint. Give this a go, if you want some quick handy advice, it is not expensive and worth the money.
