I am not what I would consider an artist and I needed something I could do easily at home. This book gave me all the information I needed to know about all the paints on the market, and all of the relevant tools I needed - making it very easy to shop, and there was a project that worked with each of the paints. The projects are great, they are not cheesy like some other books I have but, rather they are elegant, classic, tasteful and easy to duplicate. You will find lots of great ideas and I found the book easy to follow, inspiring, full of very useful information, and something fun I can handle. As the author, Carin Heiden Atkins, says something like this in her introduction - leave your worries at the door, sit back, play your favorite music, and have a great time. You really can do this. I have recommended this book to many friends and I whole heartedly recommend this book to you. " [563] .
