Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Jennings surveys a broad variety of media, from charcoal to pastels, watercolor, gouache, oils, and more, and he relies on the advice and work of a large group of artists to help the beginner choose media, tools, and techniques. Unlike the authors of Art School, Jennings creates an actual curriculum here. Exercises that compare the same subject, e.g., a red-enameled coffeepot, painted in both acrylic and pastel, are enlightening. Very highly recommended. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
