The author shows the reader how to paint like him. While i admire the skill of the artist and the method clearly works for him, its not my favourite interpretation. I would have liked some more technical information on why he chooses the pigments he does and the thinking behind the building up of layers. If you are a beginner you run the risk of following quite a narrow approach to laying paint on canvas in the shape of a face.

A very well written and presented book.
This is very useful to those who can paint already but need more in-depth advice on portrait painting.
The last part of the book looks at other portrait artists work and how they go about making it.
