Dreams Really Do Come True With Donna Dewberry

I first became familiar with Donna while watching TV. Here was a woman saying that you, (me?) can paint and yes, it will not only look nice, but Terrific with the Dewberry method. I have all of her big books and I wish I would have bought this one first.The composition of this book is brillant. Donna shows the reader how to start with a foam plate as a palette and suddenly, your off painting leaves, vines, curlicues and then fruit and flowers. Donnas technique for painting roses is priceless. With a little practice and this book, ANYONE can achieve phenominal results.If you are even thinking about purchasing a Dewberry book, please take the plunge and buy this one. Donna's simple approach and no nonsense directions will make an artist out of even the most doubtful. Being a stay-at-home mother and forever budget conscious, Donna has changed my life. Not only have her teachings provided me with an opportunity to paint treasured gifts for every occasion, but I have sold a few of my pieces and I plan to pursue decorative painting as a career. Thank You Donna from a woman who hadn't painted with anything except her fingers until your books came along!

Painting made E-Z!

Donna Dewberry is an author with amazing talent. In this book she covers all the basics, from how to hold and load your brush to completing a fruit cabinet with matching plates. It also covers some faux finishes, such as antiquing and marble effects. The Complete Book of One-Stroke Painting is packed full of colorful photos. There are pictures of strokes, projects, and pattern designs. The instructions for each basic stroke, and each project are in plain english so even the first time painter can catch on.After trying the one-stroke technique, I was a bit frustrated. I couldn't seem to make that brush work the way it was suppost to...but I kept trying and by the end of the evening I was making all kinds of pretty things. I even painted an outlet cover with a faux marble finish with grapes and vines. This technique does require practice, but let me tell you, there is no better teacher than Donna's Complete Book of One-Stroke Painting. I give it an A+.

Donna's simple technique helps you create beautiful pieces

This book is filled with beautiful pictures of the projects which can be done in a short amount of time. You don't need any formal art training nor even artistic ability to create beautiful masterpieces on wood, canvas, fabric or any medium. You need to purchase only a few items to get started. The directions are easy-to-follow, the project photos are gorgeous and you can duplcate them with ease. This style is so simple. Just 2 colors on a brush yield so many color shades, all in just one stroke. If you've always wanted to do decorative painting, but have "2 right hands," this book is for you. Try it--you'll love it! :-)
