I have only been doing artwork for a couple of years but never had a defined vision of what i wanted to paint or paint with
I bought this book after reading some reports about it as i usually do
As a newbie to animals drawing and painting this sort of caught my eye but after getting it i have to admit its not for beginners which i thought it might be useful for but more an advanced artist
There are plenty of sketches which start with the circles and squares basic profiles as they like to refer to them also there are some that have the basic full outline of the particular animal
Maybe this is a bit too early for me to make a judgment so i will post this now then return at a later date to update my progress
As my years are fast passing me by i just hope i have enough time to Aspire to my dream of becoming a reasonable artist
My only critisism would be that the projects in coloured pencil are in another book that I already have, 'Animals In Coloured Pencil'. I may not have bought this book if I had known this.
However in my opinion the book itself is worthy of the five stars that I have given it.
However I have given it 5 stars because the book itself is worth it.
Excellent service and the condition of the book was as new, lucky me!
