A really comprehensive book - and excellent buy -

Each art discipline watercolour, acrylics and oils is treated in an interesting, very easy to read style with excellent illustrations. It has a simple explanation of colour theory, how preparing painting surfaces, types of equipment etc. There are also very practical tips on how to cope with mistakes and correct them. This is also the type of book you can just dip into for occasional help/ideas etc. Highly recommended and excellent value.
