One of my favorite painting books. Good information on color theory, shading, tinting, getting browns. I like the step by step instructions and the list of colors used for each painting. Really good for beginners. The book has still life, landscapes, portraits, animals and flowers. Worth purchasing.

Awesome starter book. The step by step instruction is helpful. Some artist could be more specific about amounts or colors but it's simple and easy to follow as well contains easier/more difficult projects.
