The chapters follow a progressive sequence that teaches basic skills through practical, accessible exercises-how to handle a brush, achieve the right paint consistency, mix color, and create dimension-building a solid foundation that readers can rely on as painting projects grow more challenging.
A special feature is the artwork and commentary of real students, which helps beginners set realistic goals and shows them how other artists at the same level of experience have worked through inevitable setbacks to achieve success.
