Starting with the basics, Lee's masterful instruction includes:

Help with choosing brushes, paints and other materials

Easy methods for thinning paint, mixing colors and preparing surfaces

Visual explanations of color and composition

Close-up instruction for getting the details just right, including textures, shading, reflections, highlights and skin tones

40 step-by-step painting demonstrations for painting still-lifes, landscapes, portraits, flowers, animals and more
