      I was impressed with the quality of the art projects and gallery images in this book. When I received it I could not put it down, I just kept looking at the pictures of the art over and over being thoroughly amazed at the quality of something that could be produced from a used book! The instructions that are given for the projects are clearly easy to follow. The only thing is that instructions are not given for all the gallery images that are shown for featured artists but that is expected with an art how to book. But, if you work through the projects given I believe you would be adept enough to create something comperable to the gallery images. Moreover, that is what art is: a person's own interpretation of the ideas given--not exact copies! Too many times people do not get the fact that art is original--an artist just gives an idea and instructions on a process and the person is to put his/her unique twist to that concept and invent their own masterpiece.
