Anyone Can Paint — I Promise


The author, a master artist and teacher, has been painting since he was eight years old and has been teaching painting for the past decade. He has developed a method of teaching that eliminates a lot of the unnecessary trial and error of older methods and has written this book as a tool for sharing his techniques with others. A series of step-by-step photographs accompanied by detailed instructions for every stroke of the brush will help the beginner get off to the right start for many pleasurable hours of painting and perhaps discover a real talent for painting. Since Mr. Garden’s students range in age from eight to eighty, it is supposed that this book will appeal to as wide an audience. The only prerequisite for learning to paint is the desire to paint, and following the directions in this book will take you from the beginning to the end of three compete paintings. We hope you enjoy it. Robert Garden passed away in December of 2022.
