   The Best Book For Landscape painting in acrylics
This is one of the BEST books for landscape painting you can buy. I am mostly for acrylic paint, it goes threw the technique,Colors,Brushes,Ect... Everything you need to know about landscape painting is in this book, plus it has activities that throw you step by step,great for beginners and pros.
   Good Book, but WARNING!
Like all of Jerry Yarnell's books, this one has detailed instructions on painting various elements of landscapes in acrylic. As another reviewer noted, there are no landscapes with briefings from start to finish. Just various elements of landscapes - trees, water, moving water, rainbows, rocks, etc. I think that all these elements could be combined into a end to a complete picture. But a warning : if you already own Jerry Yarnall's landscape painting secrets, DO NOT BUY this book. Because of this, I deduced a star from what would otherwise have been a 4-star rating.
   He does cut copy and paste major sections of previous books into the new / other books. So if you buy more than one, you repeate
He does cut copy and paste new sections of previous books into the major other books. If you buy more than one, you buy the same thing over and over again. Beware the buyer!
   The books tips and demos are useful IF you only choose it
The books - Tips and Demos are useful if you choose it only. But it is just like Yarnells'apos ; Landscape Secrets in a smaller size and maybe a page or two different, if I had known, I would have chosen another book. It has been donated to our local library because the cost to send it back was greater than the cost of the library.
   Great for those knowledgabe about acryllics, but not on landscapes.
This is a fantastic book for those who are uncomfortable with dealing with landscapes in Acryllic. Acryllic dries very quickly and can be intimidating when you are talking about paiting things on a grander scale than a portrait or still life. The author uses the technique of the thumbnails, in which you apply different landscape aspects on a canvas pad, rather than on a larger canvas. At Michael's, I get canvas pads and canvases for next to nothing when they go on sale or clearance. Once you go through the excersises, you can apply them with confidence to a larger compostion. I really like this book ''.
   You can always learn something
Overall, I can 't put my finger on it, but this book really did not do much for me, though I really like Jerry Yarnell and thinks he is a great teacher.
   Exceptional artist
It is a different book to explore great techniques. I already followed so many different artists, sometimes I forget what medium I am working with. This man is an exceptional artist, though.
