Tammie Painter
I don't expect much from Dummies books, but was surprised at the amount of information in this book. Contains some terrific tips and hints as well as a few projects to test out what you've learned.
One of the better basic acrylic painting books.

This is one book I'll be referring to again and again, but not for the acrylic part (which is, I'm sure, very good; I just have't used acrylics, so didn't pay much attention to acrylic specific stuff - a complement to a book on acrylic painting). Very good section on understanding and using balance, with plenty of real examples). A good primer on non-representational art. Just those two topics (there's plenty more besides those) are enough to give it 5 stars.

A good little book to use as an accompaniment to the classes I am taking.
She uses water a lot though, which I don't.
But still, you can take what you need from the book - just like with any instruction.
Had great ideas on how to paint and what to paint and also tricks on painting. Will def be looking back in this book for great ideas and tricks when I am painting
