This is a rah-rah-follow-your-heart-and-let-it-flow-through-your-paintbrush kind of book vs. instructional. Yes, there are some instructions given but they are quite general. I was thankful that the author provided samples from other artists for variety, but even then the instructions were very vague.

If you're seeking encouragement to just get paint onto a surface, you'll love this book. If you want specific ideas/tutorials, I'd look elsewhere (just thankful for the borrowed via Amazon Prime

I love everything about this book and all the women represented in it. If you have ever considered painting, check it out. You can read it free on Amazon if you are a Prime member but heed this warning: you may want to buy all the books these ladies have written after you do.
