Net Galley Review:

This is a great primer for any one who has ever had the urge to paint with acrylics. From a basic shopping list to simple step by step directions you will be excitied to paint you first masterpiece. I was lucky enough to have a great high school Art teacher for 4 years but have not had the urge to paint again untill I was inspired by this book. Can’t wait to get started.
