The publisher's review stated...'Seven richly illustrated tutorials each present a painting by a great artist, with an in-depth focus on technique, a breakdown on the use of color, points on composition, background information, and a discussion of the work as a whole.' In reality, out of the seven paintings by famous artists, only TWO are pastels, the rest are oils. This is not what I expected.
