Good for beginners!

If you already have formal training in fine arts you may not find information of any additional benefit to your existing knowledge. This book has valuable information for those who do not have formal training. If you are just starting to paint with the figure as your subject of interest then this book will have very helpful information to better comprehend various elements in composition and style considerations, as well as some insight into figure representation in paintings from the past. The step by step is only interesting from the standpoint of seeing the progression of this artist's work but offers very little in actual instruction of paint application technique. For the experienced painter the book offers very little in the way of technical inspiration or information not already second nature.
