A very well written book with clear instructions. I ordered two other books on acrylic techniques for beginners and will admit, had greater expectations from those other books. The reason being, the tag line for the book says exploring mixed media techniques.... I was pleasantly surprised. Out of all the books this one had the best and most detailed instructions on even the basic acrylic techniques. If you are an advanced beginner and are intrigued by various effects professional artists are able to achieve in their work then I would highly recommend buying this book. Keep an eye on the small sections on the corners of the pages they might not seem very significant to start with however as I found out after experimenting with acrylic washes, pouring techniques they are actually quiet important reference points.
Fresh new ways to create fabulous paintings with mixed media techniques!
