The artist’s handbook by Ralph Mayer

20170327_145924 (1)This book is like an encyclopedia of all paints, materials, techniques – basically, anything you are not sure about you can look up in here.  I have seen it referred to as the artist’s bible…I don’t feel it is a book you would sit down and read but it is handy to have to look up a type of brush, or pallette knife (I have done both). This is especially useful for students, like myself, who are working without the aid of a teacher to direct questions to on basic techniques.  My only criticism is that is not so much about using acrylics, my chosen medium. A book to keep for life however. 🙂
