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 read through the book to get a feel for the process of oil painting and I was not disappointed. As a beginner I am now reading it again but will do the lessons as I go along, so it may take some time to finish it. I like it.
If you order this quite good book, get the printed...not Kindle...version. It's necessary to flip back and forth as you learn the techniques, and to compare illustrations often, which is MUCH EASIER in print in this case vs. electronic version.
