This book is so lovely and enjoyable to look at and read. The teaching of drawing little girlies is wonderful. My grand daughter and I love it. It comes with a CD which is wonderful and very insightful. I highly recommend.
Suzi is an amazing teacher! I have taken her online classes for a couple of years as well as in person and she has rocked my world. Her techniques are easy to learn and her personality and quirkiness make her very approachable. This book is great for beginners in the mixed media format as well as more experienced artists who want to broaden their style.
I love the book, but I did not get the DVD that was supposed to come with it. Tried to contact CS but no luck so far.
for anyone who wants to learn how to draw artsy girls for art journals.
Would love this on my NOOK Color! Please!
