This book was recommended by one of my art instructors. So much good information on products and painting techniques. I have many notes and tabs in this book and refer to it frequently. Lots of full color painting to demonstrate the author's suggestions for composition, tonal value, color and light and various techniques. I highly recommend this book for any beginning or intermediate painter.
