I like the fact that it is in oil or acrylic. It doesn’t matter they are both

I took up painting in 2010 and have had no lessons, but I find that this book helps me to see the step by step process involved. It conveys what is painted first, the colors used and the brushes you can use, if you choose. Dorthy Dent is another of my favorites!

The projects are nice and easy to follow I would do this after a few other books once you feel confident mixing your own paint. The paint she uses (acrylic) is craft paint and while it comes in a wide range of colors I think moving up to a student grade paint you will get better results basics is a good one…mix the colors you like and toy can follow the rest.
Excellent book for beginners!

This is an awesome book, it shows step by step techniques and how to use them to create a specific painting. I’ve found that when I practice these techniques I can apply them to anything i paint. Just finished painting off a photo of my nephew, if you’d have asked me if I thought I’d ever be a painter a month ago I would have laughed.
