I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I could relate to the choice of medium. It is a book of color theory and how to use it in your paintings but the author is an oil painter and I just couldn't quite connect to it as I would have liked. No fault of the author, it is just that I am not an oil painter and I didn't realize that it was more geared towards oil painting.
