    Excellent reference

    had some issues finding the brushes on the publisher's site, but as for the book itself it is terrific and by working the examples one has the benefit of practicing the techniques needed to advance skills in digital painting. Painter is a powerful program and the book gives many keys to unlock both the program and advance skill level.
