Acknowledgements and Contributors

I thank the wonderful team at Focal Press who helped make this book a reality, especially my editors Valerie Geary and David Albon.

Thank you to the great teams of people at Corel and Wacom who have produced such amazing art tools for artists like me, and who have been so supportive and encouraging over the years. Many of you have become good friends and are always such a pleasure to work with. Thanks to Mark Zimmer and the late Tom Hedges for creating Painter, to John Derry for helping shape it into what it is today, to Robert MacDonald, Kelly Manuel, David Toeg and my other friends at Corel, and to Mr Yamada, Jim McCartney, Doug Little, Michael Marcum, Peter Dietrich, Tom Lam, Helen Deng, Izumi Tosa and my other friends at Wacom.

Thank you to Peggy (www.PeggyGyulai.com) for being such a loving and supportive sounding board for bouncing ideas off, for sharing so much of her own talent, expertise and experience, and for taking the time to read over my manuscript, as well as keeping me well caffeinated!

Thank you to my mum, Margaret, and sister Debbi, both artists whose wise words, advice and critiques over the years have undoubtedly contributed to the artistic approach I share in this book. Thanks to the rest of my family who are always encouraging, supportive and happy to offer opinions whenever asked, and who are by now used to me writing my books while on travels in the UK!

Thank you to the many thousands of students whom I have had the pleasure of teaching over the last 15 years for your inspiration and enthusiasm. Wishing you all the best with your continued creative development.

Thank you to those who have been the subjects of, and inspiration for, the paintings featured in this book, and to those who have generously shared their thoughts and advice.

Thank you to all the contributors who have so generously shared their creativity in this book, including all those (listed below) who kindly permitted me to include their custom brushes within the JeremyFaves2 brush category contained in the attached resource CD and who contributed to the Student Gallery.
