    Excelent - Clear, concise, & beautifully illustated

    I'm just getting back into the art field, after becoming disabled. Many of these techniques I haven't worked with since college. This book Gave clear & concise information with beautifu illustrations throughout. A beginner can easily follow the myriad examples of techniques & applications to various projects, yet there is sufficient detail for more advanced artist without being overly cumbersome. Very nicely put together.
