Walter Foster was truly a pioneer in making it possible for many people to improve their art skills easily and economically. Walter passed away in 1981, but he is fondly remembered for his warmth, dedication, and unique line of books.

I found this book very helpful in teaching me what Oils or Acylics to use and how to get skin tones right and which canvases to use, And where to start and finish, I am looking forward to drawing and Painting my own Portrait.

I have brought a few books on portriat painting alot more expensive than this one and to be honest I think this is the best, Its not a bulk of content and full of flowery words, instead it gets straight to the point of good advice from Timothy Chambers who is an extremely good artist. I am disappointed in some books I have spent more money on and this one did not cost much and is far better. I think walter Foster books are good and have come on here to buy another one.

Thought it was a book, but its got less pages than a magazine. I think its A3 size? Nice pictures though.

A great book at a great price and the seller offered to refund my payment if the book was not of the required standard. I could not have asked for
a more generous offer. I can't wait to put into practice what I have read so fat considering it only arrived this morning..
