It is perfect for almost any level of painter, as a beginner I found it very easily builds on basic concepts onto more complex ones in an easy to duplicate manner, my Father who has painted for years and has a masters in fine art from Chelsea University ended up borrowing it as even he found some helpful tips in it! I highly recommend it. Emilio (Sussex) on 16 Mar 2013
