A book review

Dear visitor,

I usually publish my book reviews on my site http://LiaMetal.tripod.com, but this time I wasn't able to do so due to technical problems. This blog can definitely host my latest book reviews for the time being...

Thank you for visiting!

Dan Bartges, a full time artist since 1996, has produced oil paintings and water colors that have been acquired by private collectors nationwide and by a number of Fortune 500 companies. He currently lives in Virginia with his family.

Color is Everything is a useful mini guide that is a valuable tool for every artist. The book is in full color, illustrated, and gives step by step instructions on how to learn about colors and their use in different mediums. Dan illustrated his points by quick exercises that are easy to do and enjoyable as well.

This mini color guide is a must for every artist who needs a fast seminar on color combinations. Mastering color is made a lot easier to learn by following the author’s tips and advice. It also stimulates the desire to use the new hues one learns and create unique pieces of art! A very enjoyable and useful book that will become the bible of the artist!
