I love, love, love learning new techniques in the media of painting because I can never learn too many tips. Foundations of Drawing by Al Gury is educational. I devoured each of the pages and loved all of the tips and examples shown throughout this informative book. I can only say that this will be the one book to refer to for some time to come. If I had to only be given one book for painting techniques than this book would be the one, the definitive one. I highly recommend! I received a copy for this review from blogging for books and all opinions are my own.
