This has been one of the most helpful books on portrait painting I have read, and was just the boost I needed to try more. It is well-written and organized, thorough, and the step-by step demos helpful. It is an excellent book for a beginning portrait artist, and well-worth the investment.
In short, I highly recommend this book by Chris Saper, or any of her books and DVD's, for that matter!
I highly reccomend this book. It contains all the essentials a student needs to focus on. I love the simple yet personal way it is written, I love the practical and informative steps and the paintings. I bought a similar book the same day which I like (but have not read) - but I love this one. If I could make a small criticism: here in Europe I cannot find many of the colours used and I wish the authour had put more alternative names, just to help get me started. If you only get one portrait book - get this one. Thanks, Chris Saper - Anna
