Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I love this book...it has so many useful and helpful illustrations to enable a person to really improve sketching. I am going to Hawaii soon and will definitely use a lot of the info to bring back some nice sketches! I intend to continue this hobby for the rest of my life!
