This book did not need a free star however; it is a well thought out work with much useful information in a tight, neat package. I find it a pleasure to go back to and refresh my memory on various points.
The information on color appealed to me greatly. The transparent oil pigments information was very helpful and has me researching further. The color was good to very good throughout the book. The sequence that information is presented is very good. It is not long winded but rather to the point. It moves along to my satisfaction.
I would like to see more art related books using this format. I'd particularly like to see one dedicated to color, color mixing and the exact pigments or products used to do it. A handbook of this nature would be invaluable to students and teachers alike.
I will recommend this book to artists at all levels of accomplishment. It is a keeper.
Another plus is the binding. The ring binding means you don't have to crack the book spine to keep it open.
This book is perfect for the artist who wants to-the-point instruction that includes problem solving. I'm recommending it to the students in my classes. Frankly, it's the best I've seen.
to read, reference and I love love love the spiral - You can open it and use it as you paint - I do believe the other books I mentioned should be read for the depth of information but after you do that this book gives you an easy reference to review the information
Add it to any oil painters library for sure!
