The various elements of the book - the great reproductions, Pamelia Markwood's wonderful photographs that illustrate the technical processes with clarity and precision, the book's thoughtful structure, and Krug's easily understood instructions - work together to give one the sense of being personally guided by a very gifted and knowledgeable teacher and practitioner of art. The book also helpfully includes a list of further recommended reading, a glossary of terms, an index and safety guidelines. I highly recommend it.
The title says it all. It covers all aeras of the painting process, from makeing your own paints to streaching your canvas. Plus actual painting techiques for each type of paint like Oils, Acrylics, Water colors, and more. I would advice any art student, teacher recommended or not, to buy this book even if only for reference.
