Reviews - What do customers think about Donna Dewberry's Complete Book of One-Stroke Painting (Decorative Painting)?
great art lessons for non artists Apr 6, 2008
This technique is amazing, it can make a painter out of a no talent like me. The instructions and illustrations are great.
The Voice of Inexperience Dec 27, 2006
I have no natural artistic talent and no art experience, so I thought this book which promises "quick and easy techniques" would be perfect for me. However, I've been practicing Donna Dewberry's techniques for two months and still can't perfect the brush strokes. My opinion is that the words "quick and easy" are false advertising and should be removed by the publisher.

Excellent book. Would recommend to anyone interested in acrylics.
I can finally paint! Jul 8, 2003
I always wanted to be an artist, and with Donna's easy-to-follow techniques, I can now paint! Before, I drew rotten stick figures, but Donna had me painting like a pro in nothing flat! I have given items away as gifts, and have had requests for items! I've been concentrating on clay flower pots, but I now feel ready to branch out to bigger and better things! Thanks Donna!
Buy It! You'll thank me later! :) Oct 27, 2002
One Stroke Painting is the way to go! This book is a must have! If you ever wanted to learn to paint, here is your chance.
Beginners - you too, will produce results in no time. The instructions and illustrations are straightfoward and easy to understand. I did a rose and rosebuds on a french bucket. No one would believe I did it freehand (no pattern). I had never painted a day in my life, before buying this book.
