    Beware: This book is part of the book Your Artist's Brain. It is there word by word, picture by picture.

    I found this book by accident, started to read it and left without buying it. I was overjoyed at finding a copy on Amazon. This book is loaded with great information, instruction and exercises. I highly recommend getting the book and practicing the exercises, you will learn more that way. I can see why he would be a good teacher. This is no "rip-off" of any other book, especially "...Right Side of the Brain." Completely different approaches to a very sometimes difficult medium! I don't think you can go wrong with this book.

    Green grass, blue sky and white clouds. Look again and think again. This book is invaluable to get you to see that what your brain tells you is not necessarily so. It teaches you to see the colours that are really there, in fact to see like an artist sees. I would recommend this book for any struggling artist looking to produce and create realistic colours. But this book is not just for the beginner, it really does teach, but not preach, even when you thought you had seen it all. A good book to read and read over again and again.

    Highly recommend for a beginning artist, ....emphasis on shape and value for a looser style.
