To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm new to painting and to acrylics. I've bought lots of books on the subject and this is one of the best. It has a very thorough review of materials and then goes thru each acrylic technique in some detail (thin washes, opaque, textured).
My only reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that too many of the pictures are in black and white which seems ridiculous for a book about painting.
But the quality of the contents more than make up for that one shortcoming. A great book to learn more about painting with acrylics.
I'd suggest also buying a book with technique demonstrations... I have bought several but am still searching for the perfect book.
The book that I ordered matched perfectly the description by the seller. It arrived safely in my mailbox, and also in a timely manner. I am completely happy with this purchase, and would be happy to use this merchant again for further purchases. I would recomment the merchant. Thanks.
