This book is loaded with great tips. I'm just starting on painting, and it takes you step by step. You won't be sorry you made this purchase!

Excellent for a beginner like myself it breaks it down very well. My only problem is the photos. They are so small and there is no way to zoom in on them. I'd give it 5 stars if that problem was fixed.
