Focusing on the needs of the first-time painter, this book covers everything from selecting brushes and setting up your palette to key principles of color and composition, presented in a way that moves you confidently from first strokes to finished paintings.

  • Mini demonstrations break down fundamental painting techniques in a clear, common sense way
