Review: Drawing: Faces: Learn to paint step by step

User Review  - Lady Danielle aka The Book Huntress - Goodreads

I've had this book for a long time and when I get into a mode of working on my art, I go back to it. The tips on drawing the face are invaluable. While they don't replace actual instruction, they are very helpful. Read full review
