"Billed in the subtitle as "the world's most enjoyable painting
course, ever," this bright, rousing book can be useful to pro and
amateur painters alike. The authors intend to "set free your

"The authors encourage readers to engage actively with creativity. Chapters cover common painting concerns, such as materials, color, and pattern, but the many short step-by-step exercises included often blend the element of surprise with unusual materials or activities or both. ... Artists of all abilities can benefit from this entertaining book."
"This book takes a wonderfully colorful romp through ideas for painting fun. The volume's design allows you to believe you can take the time to pursue competency with a variety of painting styles."
