Recent reviews “ Your book is just wonderful. It really is the most helpful book I've ever found. For me, the simplicity, logic, layout and color photos of your book lets me dive right into it with my imagination. The clarity you have from so many years of experience makes it work. I imagine a teacher might create a whole curriculum around it, and the students would be grateful to have this book in there hot hands because it says,"GO", make art that you love.” "May I just say I loved Annie O'Brien Gonzales' first book, Bold Expressive Painting. But here's the thing -- her second book is also fabulous! In fact, it's even more fabulous than the first one, which is saying something. The discussions about painting, inspiration, the projects, everything is designed to stimulate and motivate, and that doesn't even count the wondrous beauty of the example paintings scattered throughout the book. If there was one book that I would recommend you buy to improve your painting, this is it."
