After studying works of art from different part of the world (as how the book presented), I am able to write reviews and essay about an artwork whenever I see one in a museum or a gallery. Besides, the way how the book is organized in different part like fundemental techniques, process, and theme helps me to understand the content easily.
I would have really like for the font to be a little bigger, as well as spacing out some of the content in the boxes.read more
