I won't comment about Terry's paintings - it is such a personal opinion.
What really annoyed me so much that it put me off this book is the description of recommended brushes. Who on earth has heard of brushes called "Golden Leaf"; "Wizard"' "Fan Gogh" or "Fan Gogh px"? Ok, I have heard of them, but only because they are sold under Terry's name. Perhaps I shouldn't feel annoyed by this, but I do! I just don't expect this sort of thing in what I hoped was a serious art book.
On a more positive note, the illustrations, whether you like the finished paintings or not, are clear and the quality of reproduction is good. The notes are also very clear.
I guess the title is clear enough - this is a book designed more for the beginner.
