The Complete Artist's Manual is today's essential studio companion.

My Take on the Book

In each section the writing is clear and understandable and you get to easily move through from conceptualization to practical application. This book is definitely a must have for any artist and it will be one that will provide you with a complete resource that will help you to become an even stronger artist in the end.
