Each title in the Artist's Handbook Series has a sturdy hardcover binding, allowing it to be taken out to the field as handily as it is used in the studio.

Each title supplements textual instruction with hundreds of color illustrations showing paintings in various stages of completion. There is also detailed information on artists' tools, techniques, mixing colors, creating special effects, and trouble-shooting to correct errors. The Artist's Handbooks show examples of works by famous artists in the respective media to help students see how each medium has been used by world-renowned masters.

This is a wonderful Handbook for artists of all levels of skill. 224 pages of everything you ever wanted to know about oils. I have been an artist for years, preferring acrylics but just began in water soluable oils. This book has become my daily reference guide and today in class my instructor asked where she could purchase it. She felt it explained everything she taught in a very clear and precise manner. A great add to every artist's library!

This book has been informative, easy to use due to the binding, and you can wipe paint off if you happen to misplace your brush as you reread directions!
Rated by: Patricia M. in San Marcos,, CA
This handy-sized book is very concise and the information clearly presented. A book that would be of great help to any watercolorist.
