Excellent and Inspiring!
If you like the books of Danny Gregory, Cathy Johnson and D. Price, you will *love* this one.
It is filled to the brim with THE most inspiring art; it's lively and beautiful and it makes me want to go out and draw!
What I find incredibly helpful are the notes with each sketch; not only about the materials used, but also about how long it took to do a sketch.
It's very reassuring to know that an incredibly beautiful drawing took, say, 2 hours to make - it makes me feel less disappointed in my rough, 10 minute sketches.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! by bummble
