4.0 étoiles sur 5Acrylics in Watercolor Technique1 septembre 2011
Par D. Salvagin La Deetda Reads - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a lovely book with step by step instruction in achieving each painting. However there is no mention in the description that this is a watercolor technique painted with acrylic paints. I prefer not to paint in this technique and I may have passed it up if I had known. I will give these paintings a try since they are truly beautiful.
UPDATE 2-11-2012: I put a photo of my finished Venice painting above in "customer images". I enjoyed painting from this book but it took some creative manipulation of paint to accomplish this on canvas. I recommend that a flat panel surface be used. As can be seen, I combined two of the books paintings into one painting. I intend to paint other scenes from this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5Venice in Acrylics24 novembre 2011
Par Rowena - Publié sur Amazon.com
Whilst the instructions are clear and precise, the drawings leave a lot to be desired. It seems as if the author made her sketches in somewhat of a hurry. This 'looseness' may be her particular style, but a good drawing is paramount to the finished painting. The perspective in some of the tracings is also odd. I completed one of the studies of a Venetian waterway and kept looking at it knowing there was something odd about it. I put it away for a few weeks and when I looked at it again it was clear that the drawing was out of perspective. Perspective and accuracy is very important in paintings of buildings. I'm afraid this book just seems to have lost the plot.
