A bit on the thin side.
on 28 January 2013
Ok this book has 62 pages. It doesn't start to get to the step by step projects until page 40! And there's only 3.
After the author goes on about materials,paint,brushes,pallet knifes,surfaces and other material he then goes on about tone and colour,the colour wheel,colour relationships then mixing paint,sketching and finally composition. This all took up 18 pages not including intro! I think this was a lazy way to bulk out a book. This information is ok if it's for total beginners but I wish they would advise that it's for the clueless that don't know already about the basics,materials and tools.I give it 2 stars because the 3 projects are nice colourful paitings. But all in all very disappointed.
