    Wonderful Book

    I have read and used almost every drawing book ever published I think, well, at least 20 of them, and this is THE BEST book on learning how to draw I have ever used. I have made more progress using this book than any other. BUY IT and USE IT. It works!

    Lots of info..

    The book had alot of writing, be forwarned, but also has good picture content. In the "People" chapter there's a section on "life drawing" (i.e. detailed anatomy) so beware for younger eyes. It covers a wide range of subjects, from landscapes and plantlife to animals and people.

    This one works

    You will draw from the first chapter. I have lots of other books that make you wade through chapter after chapter of background stuff before you start to draw. Not this one!

    If this is hard to draw...

    If some drawings are too hard to draw why would you spend the money in the first place.
