    The worst drawing book I have ever seen.
    I teach drawing and painting.
    One of my students, a beginner, was all proud to show me this book she had just bought.
    While the text contains good information, the illustrations are horrible. Done by someone who clearly does not know how to observe his subject or how to render it.
    I cannot believe this book has been published in at least 3 languages: English, French and Spanish. As for me I will use some of it's illustrations to show my students what not to do.
    Pages 11, 37, 59, 61 and 63 are the most awful. This author should at least refrain from showing his drawings of people and portraits. He clearly knows very little about anatomy.
    There are a lot of much better books out there. I find Betty Edward's method, using the right side of the brain, particularly useful for beginners and even for experimented artists. Starting with her exercise book your learn to observe. Then you can use other books to learn about drawing your favorite subjects.

    ** RESPONSE FROM THE SAA **

    We are sorry you didn't enjoy the book; many of the depictions within are highly stylised based on the artist's particular method of drawing. This may not appeal to all readers, and to them we would be happy to offer our no quibble returns guarantee. (Posted on 28/02/2017)

  3. Worst ever book I've seen on drawing Review by Max
    Rating

    It's is the worst book on drawing I have ever seen in my life. The author is clearly a beginner who lacks knowledge and practice in terms of anatomy, proportions, perspective and even drawing techniques. A high school student can draw better than that. I'm sorry to sound so harsh but please do not waste a penny on this.

    ** RESPONSE FROM THE SAA **

    We're sorry you feel so strongly about this book. Others may disagree about its quality, but our no quibble refund or replacement promise means that you can return this book with no loss to yourself. (Posted on 15/05/2015)
