I agree with the first two reviews. This book was more than I could have hoped for! I have also purchased several books on this subject. I have painted a number of murals in my home, but this book is so inspiring, I can't wait to start painting again. It may also give me the motivation I need to create murals elsewhere. The author shares lots of techniques with detailed explainations that many other books don't. All the murals shown in the book are very professional. There is something for everyone.
This book is the answer to my prayers! I own many books on murals, trompe loeil, acrylic paint techniques, etc. and nothing compares to what I have learned from this book. It's just like going to school to learn these techniques (which I have, by the way). I could have saved myself alot of time and money if I knew that this book was coming out. It covers everything, from colors to use, equipment, brushes, perspective, and paint techniques to how to plan out a trompe loeil mural. It's about time someone wrote a book that doesn't hold back any secrets. I had many questions even after taking a week long class and I think this book has answered all of them. If you are serious about becoming a trompe loeil artist (which I am) or you just want to learn the right way to do a trompe loeil mural in your home, this is the book for you. There are many photos of wonderful murals the author has done with step-by-step instructions. Have fun.
