Excellent reference. When I took a chance on this book, I was afraid it might be above my skill level, but it blew me away with how easy it was to follow. Very clear instructions for materials for beginners like myself, and step by step for advanced artists. I really like the examples of using strong light on a dark surface, and learned a lot from this animal art master. Highly recommend!
