I like this book and found the photopainting just another approach to the handcoloring of photos. The author definately got some interesting results and wonderful photos using this technique. I am just at the beginning of my handcoloring adventure but enjoyed this book for the artistic value and having yet another avenue to explore in handcoloring.

Our property is an oasis of all things visual. I have gotten into the habit of simply carrying my camera around as I explore it. Although I've mentioned our cave in other reviews, we simply have weird twisting trees and vines, huge boulders, fossils embedded in stones, waterfalls, and living visual things everywhere you look from deer to geckos to a little raccoon last night who couldn't be bothered by me hovering over him taking photos while he partook of the berry flavored deer food my husband had strewn about.

Because of this I'm expanding my usual acrylic art media into more photography and mixed media and things to simply bring the outdoors in

This is a great way to begin and the cover shot gives you a unique look into some ideas that can make an average photo whimsical. And the style of this artist is mostly that.

I say that because some of the works do come off a little bit rough. When whimsy is used they come off more professional, I do love the cover shot, for example. The Campbell's Soup can ala Warhol-ish, for example, is a can that was not centered (turned slightly more in one direction but not intentionally so there is more spacing on one side of the can) and the steady-hand work of coloring in the words just wasn't very steady in that and a few other examples that held intricate items that needed to be traced with the paint were rough.

But this is minor to me considering the wealth of examples within the pages. There are some that don't appear as professionally crafted but they don't detract for me due to all the others that are so well done.

This book shows what can be done with photo painting. It has supply lists and describes what is done. What I like about this book is the artwork. It takes photo painting beyond the ordinary. The painted photos in this book look like paintings. This book, although not the best for just starting out photo painting, would be a great addition to a more basic photo painting book. I know I will spend a lot of time looking through this book.
