Excellent tutorials

I was working on a portrait and the tutorials really helped me.

7 titles in all

I am old school, I like to hold a book/magazine I am reading. We are moving in 2 years, as a result I haven't been ordering any books. This has been very difficult in regard to Ann's publications. Well I decided to dive into the digital age and bought a kindle and ordered 7 of Ann's wonderful publications. To say I am a happy camper would be an understatement. I love how I can blow up the text and the drawings to study them. I can bookmark pages, make notes and take all 7 publications with me by just carrying my kindle. I've already learned several new techniques and am very excited about trying them out. Thank you Ann!

Nice presentation

At first glance, I was disappointed that this book was not a hardback copy as the cover was slightly bent in shipping. I know the material in this book will be helpful. I will start two commissioned portraits of bi-racial children this summer, and was happy to get direction on skin tones from the artists.

Excellent reference book

This book will be invaluable to me - as a full time portrait artist, I mainly work in oil, acrylic and charcoal, but have recently received commissions for pastel portraits. I would be thrilled to eventually achieve the high level of technique displayed here.
