I’m fairly new to art and am always in the lookout for new books to help me hone my skills. Roth’ book was very inviting and I was pleased to work my way through.

First, the good points.

There is loads of advice on the materials and equipment one needs to get out and work outside.

Ms. Roth explains clearly how she approaches her art. She takes us through several paintings from initial sketch to how she mixed her colours and where to apply them. But oh my, those colours…

The garish choice of unnatural looking colours made me wince. This is probably down to personal taste, but the Eiffel Tower isn’t pink, and I found Ms Ruth’s style more illustrative rather than painterly.

However, this is a fun book with much good advice in it and well worth a look.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
