A (seemingly) comprehensive introduction to art techniques and materials, sort of like a Practical Art 101 (as opposed to The Theory of Art, which high schools seem intent on teaching instead).

I adore this art manual. I love the pictures of the paintings and found the techniques very useful. Color and Composition was my favorite topic in this book.
