This book wasn’t exactly what I was looking for because I wanted a lot more step-by-step instruction (I’m painting with acrylics for the first time) but there were a lot of helpful tips and I liked seeing the four stages of paintings…drawing, painting, awkward stage and finish.

Good Self-help Book

I am really enjoying this book. It illustrates some of the different techniques used by Lee Hammond. I am taking some local art classes, and this book gives me some interesting projects to work on at home. Even the simple example of making a round ball or shere look three-dimensional is helpful to a new painter and is not as easy as it looks. She stresses that there is an “Awkward Stage” in any painting, and she points this stage out in each of the projects in the book. This has helped and encouraged me to give my paintings the final details needed to make my paintings more realistic.

happy with my choice

I found this used book when I was looking for a beginning acrylics book for exercises and leasons about color, technique, perspective, etc. I am looking forward to starting the exercises listed. The author included pictures to show the stages of the painting and lists which colors she used for each. Good beginners resource.
