Decorative Painting Books
Can anyone recommend a really good "how to" book for an absolute beginner in decorative painting? I am currently enrolled in a five-session class , but I would like to continue teaching myself after it ends. I want to be able to paint like the pros, but need a really good starter book to learn brush strokes, techniques, etc. Also, what is the difference between Folk Art, Tole Art, Decorative Painting??
