Review quote

-From an upbeat, lighthearted point of view, this workbook, written by working artist and art educator Davenport, encourages readers to get in touch with their creativity through drawing female faces in whimsical styles. The guide first provides a lengthier than average discussion of a wide variety of art materials, then plunges into easy to follow, step-by-step exercises. Individual steps are numbered and text is used to describe in detail the action of the pencil, pen, or brush. Davenport uses her fashion illustration background as a jumping-off point. Simplified styles of drawing prevail, but the author still takes on anatomy and underlying facial structure, explaining how to represent them convincingly in two dimensions. Sections on mixed media and collage offer advice for the reader on spontaneity. VERDICT Younger readers, especially teen girls, will enjoy this book most.- - Library Journalshow more
