- A great book for everyone Review by Carole
I recently purchased this book for my library. The artist makes it all look so simply, and her art is magnificent. My fingers are already itching to start painting right away.

- A must-have book for the oil painter! Review by lili
Being a self-taught artist, I was hesitant to buy this book. I thought paintings that beautiful must be terribly difficult to achieve. However, the artist/author has gone into great detail to describe everything in clear terms. She begins with listing and explaining what brushes and paints she uses and discusses the need for very detailed sketching before the painting is started. The way her glazes gradually make the painting start to glow is absolutely incredible. Not only is everything she teaches very easy to understand: it is actually FUN and is very rewarding as the painting progresses. I find myself picking up the book just to look at her paintings and somehow always find something new I hadn't noticed before. This book is full of "aha" moments. I shared with my artist friends at our weekly meeting and everyone was raving about it.
