From Library Journal:

Picasso once said, "Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life." Reader's Digest is expert at bringing art into the everyday lives of amateurs wanting to delve into various media. Here, the magazine's editors once again offer a reassuring, straightforward introduction aimed at the absolute beginner. They entertainingly teach basic techniques requiring simple materials for drawing, watercolors, oils and acrylics, pastels, and mixed media. Wisely, they offer more advanced concepts as well, such as rendering negative shapes, and a variety of good tips on portraiture and color principles. Highly recommended for public libraries. Advanced artists will do better with Sean Dye's The Mixed Media Sourcebook: Techniques for Successfully Combining Painting and Drawing Mediums. (c) Copyright 2010.
