Art work by 120 artists (including Framations Resident Artist Shirley Nachtrieb) are presented in The Artistic Touch 4 which is the 4th book in the Artistic Touch series. Each artist describes their inspirations and the techniques. Watercolor is used by most of the artists, but other medium such as oil, acrylic and pastel are also presented. An example of the quality of work which makes up the Artistic Touch series is a review in the American Artistic magazine, where it was stated:American Artist Magazine Book Review of The Artistic TouchRECOMMENDED BOOKS"This lavishly illustrated volume would be worth its price even without the text. It's fun reading because of the variety of works, which are broken up into such categories as abstractions, animals, machines, the sky, travel, and landscapes. There are sixty-five watercolorists represented, including Nita Engle, Judi Betts, Frank Webb, Janet Fish, Pat Deadman, and Jeanne Dobie. Under most of the paintings reproduced here, the artists describe their inspiration for the work and offer various tidbits of technical information."
