I don't like most art advice books, but I have two in my studio which are my teachers and this is one of them. You find more good advice than artbabble here. Thanks for sharing your knowlege Mr. Brown
This art book has positively changed my art more than any other event in my life; including two art colleges. Harley Brown brings forth art matters that are not found anywhere else. This extraordinary 'how to' book is powerful for anyone at any level who is sincere about a strong evolvement in art. I won't let it out of my sight.
