A Most Useful Book Review by NANCY P.
Rating

I had been avoiding landscapes because of lack of specific how-to instructions on color mixes for various elements. Joyce gives a very friendly limited palate that works beautifully from the first painting. Her specific step-by-step teaching make this genre possible for me now. Her techniques render beautiful, happy paintings. Thank you, Joyce!
