More About the Author

I have practiced oil painting from the age of six and have since been involved in countless projects and commissions. A graduate from Kingston University, Surrey with BA Hons and Warwick University, I have since won competitions, taught life drawing and have written numerous articles on teaching art.

My art books have been inspired by my teaching experience and from my research into my other art assignments, as well as my learning experiences during my many years of oil painting.

The book did not meet my expectations. I am a fairly advanced portrait artist who was looking for more depth in technique and composition. This book hits the basics with portrait examples that are not as photo-realistic as I can achieve. For a beginner, the book might suffice, but it just didn't meet my needs.

Interesting approaches to follow. Should practice some of the techniques while reading this book. Otherwise it is a fast read.

Haven't started the projects yet but looks like a great foundation for learning skin tone & shadow in portraiture.
