Simple instructions easy to follow. High quality paper, doesn't bleed into the next page. The only thing is the instructions of the next painting is printed on the back of the previous practice area, so if I want to cut out the piece for display I lose the instructions. Received the item in good time and had great communication with the seller. Overall, an excellent purchase.
