I baught this primarily to learn how to do skin tones well and was impressed by the text of the book and illustrations in the book as shown, I did not consider that the illustrations would be in black and white on my kindle as I love the speedy delivery system. However as the kindle edition does not fulfil my needsas an art student I have had to purchase the actual text. One for experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 19 Feb. 2013

I have found this book to be extremely helpful. It is easy to read and easy to navigate. It is very useful to have a painting book divided into sections that concentrate on small aspects at a time and present a clear image of what can be achieved.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not deliver the visual examples needed 22 Jan. 2014
By Rebecca Imschweier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In far too many illustrations in the book, the skin tones look lifeless. Just what the reader is trying to avoid. Furthermore the author lists too many colors for basic skin tones with too little instruction in mixing them. The reader needs visuals of intermediary steps. And please get some new visuals other than the author's copies of famous paintings. Dead skin tones!

Some of the written hints on hands, lips, etc., were good, but the illustrated examples looked like what I was trying to avoid. Unless you have never tried a portrait in any medium, avoid this boot.
