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.
Good grief. This was almost totally useless. Badly laid out, lacking anything more than the most perfunctory information and poorly written. It looked like someone had used a translation app and converted another language to a vague approximation of English. I was disappointed, when I opened the package, to see how short the book was. I am now relieved I didn’t have to wade through any more of it.
Bought this book as I have just retired and wanted to refresh my school art classes. It is a good introduction to the terminology and some of practices around using this medium. Not money wasted. I would recommend it to anyone who like me is self taught.
Even for the most basic beginner the book is ludicrously superficial. It is more of a checklist of facts about painting which are largely self evident. It is worth spending a couple of £/€/$ more to get a proper guide which provides real instruction.
