I wanted to read this book because I wanted to improve my drawing ability. I can't draw, so this book was helpful to me. It did help with that but I learned something I didn't expect. With a book like this I need to keep the book open while I practice what I read. This is more of a read and apply book. While your reading it your also trying to apply what your reading to a separate page or board. So, I read the book book I didn't get as much out of it as I wanted because practicing will be a longer process then reading.

I read this book via NetGalley. I thank them for this book.

This book suits well if you like drawing/ painting portraits and would like to explore different mediums. It has some basic instructions about how to draw faces, color theory and explanations about tools & materials, but what makes this book special is that it explains how to approach portrait painting using watercolors, pencils, acrylics, oils and pastels.
Each medium has it's own techniques and ways to achieve certain effect, so even if you know how to draw a portrait, lets say, using colored pencils, these tutorials can help you transition to a different medium like for example, watercolors, which will behave very differently to your well-known pencils. It can also help if you want to try different options before settling for an specific medium. It has nice and simple explanations and tips, which are usually given through step-by step projects. It includes different faces: baby, kid, teen, adult and elderly, different skin tones and hair types (distributed across the different mediums, not all varieties are shown for each medium). I would recommend it to the adventurous artist who wants to explore different mediums and needs a reference guide to start the journey . *I read this book as an eARC… (més)

Art Studio: Horses & Ponies: More than 50 projects and techniques for drawing and painting horses and ponies in pencil, acrylic, watercolor, and more! by Walter Foster Creative Team is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. This is a fantastic art book with gorgeous illustrations with step-by-step projects for several different horses or foals. There is the basic template for drawing the side view of a horse's head and a 3/4 view also. Illustrations all the way through showing how to use pencil, acrylics, oil, watercolor, and my favorite - pastels!
So it not only shows the reader how to draw the horse of their choice but how to add color or shade with graphite.
This would be good for beginners with the drawing and maybe beginners to intermediate for coloring.
Wonderful book! I plan to pick it up!
