I bought this book in lieu of drawing classes which my daughter wssn't able to enroll in. She wasn't pleaed with the instructional part of the book, which according to the reviews I'd read would have helped her in drawing techniques. In her words "I don't have time to just look at pictures of drawings." I looked at the book and had to agree with her. It seemed that the majority of the book was the author's drawings, not instructions on how to improve your own techniques. The book was described as an educational book written like an art /drawing class, which is why I chose it. It is a beautiful book to look at, but for our purposes it just wasn't useful.
