Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The primary goal of editors Gabriel Martín Roig and Michael Brunelle here is to help painters hone their drawing skills. The three main sections (on the techniques of drawing, on subjects, and on converting drawings into paintings) are comprised of a series of exercises. Throughout, process photos display an artist's hand executing the different techniques, and sidebars connect particular projects to various well-known artists, such as Vincent van Gogh. VERDICT Recommended for intermediate and advanced artists wishing to improve their painting skills.
