The strongest positive I can say about the one-stroke method is that I truly believe it makes painting accessible to anyone who has a desire to learn to paint decoratively but is intimidated by the process. I believe Donna's explanations are good. Yes, this book does have some similar material to some of her other books, but one of the strengths for this book is that it pulls together many of the techniques into one resource. She demonstrates how one-stroke can be used on a variety of different media, from cakes (you need to use edible food dyes for this one) to face painting, clothes and canvases, glassware, etc. The spiral binding is a huge asset, especially if you are trying to paint while you read the instructions.
Something I feel the publisher could have improved on is the picture quality. A few of the pictures are blurry our out of focus, to the point where it is uncomfortable for me to look at the pictures. In an art book which seeks to sell the ability to emulate the art project, that isn't so helpful. But for me, the true joy of this technique is coming up with my own arrangements, and she does give you advice on how to do that, so it really only deprives me of the ability to appreciate her paintings. For someone who is desiring to replicate the entire piece, the handful of out of focus pictures may be more of a problem, but since most of the pictures are in focus I think it is a minimal problem.
While I have admired Donna Dewberry's work for a while, I really think this is a solidly useful book for anyone interested in learning the one-stroke method.
