I am amazed to see how easy is to learn to sketch, something I thought quite hard. I am not an artist but love to work with watercolors and draw. This book has taught me great techniques to sketching, all explained in the book. I take it everywhere to help me with my new acquire hobby. I am now able to sketch just about anything and to my own surprise quite well. Claire Stein
