    books on painting (probably the 100^10000000000000000 thread on this )

    im looking for a physical book or dvd that isnt VERY expensive and VERY hard to find that will help me with the basics in painting .. and i mean BASICS... i have taken color concept classes so i know what im doing with color for the most part (minus enough practice) ... but paint .. well paint scares me .. its to perminant .. so i would love a real step by step painting guide .. something i can pick up localy ( i dont like buying books on the internet to unsubstantial ) ...i know im slightly picky .. but any suggestions ...

    Both of these a relatively cheap and easy to get. They contain some very basic information (without being dumbed down), but also have deeper content, so you can keep going back to them as you advance and get more and more out of them.
    How I Paint by Thomas Buechner
    Oil Painting Techniques and Materials by Harold Speed

    Also check out Loomis' chapters on value and color in Creative Illustration.
