Too brief a treatment of the subject,
This review is from: Portrait Drawing: A Step-By-Step Art Instruction Book (Artist's Painting Library) (Paperback)
"Portrait Drawing" by Wendon Blake (drawings by John Lawn),
Watson-Guptill Publications List Price $9.95
Wendon Blake shows himself to be a very good instructor, but as is true of most of his works, his books generally are too brief, too short treatments of drawing, whether figure, portraiture or painting. This book, for example, contains only 175 illustrations. When other books offer much more illustration, it becomes difficult to rate "Portrait Drawing" higher. What is there though, is quite good.
