Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a fantastic book! She doesn't teach traditional "portrait" faces, but shows how to draw fabulous whimsical female faces. She gives step-by-step instruction on drawing the face, then shows how to shade and blend colors of all media. What I particularly liked was that she showed a lot of media - colored pencils, markers, pastels - and the exact colors to use to shade and color. I cannot say enough about this fabulous book!
I can't even describe how much I love this book! She goes over every possible mixed medium and how to use it all to draw and paint and color and create beautiful faces. She has lessons to help you learn to draw a face and then each lesson is another creative, fun way to draw faces using different mediums. This book is perfect for artists or hobbyists of all skills - even if you've never drew anything before. Throughout the book is her beautiful artwork that is absolutely drool worthy. I am a huge Jane Davenport fan and she makes it obvious that this book is something written from her heart to help inspire the reader. It would be impossible to be disappointed with this purchase.
