A really inspiring book. Howe is not only good with brushes, he can write to. He shares his knowledge in the field and hands out lots of hint and tips that reaches beyond the scope of illustrating. For you people that enjoy painting with real paint will get a lot of hands on tips and us digital boys will appreciate his view on the craft and how to keep the steam up.The book itself is made in good quality and the pictures are large and well printed. Also, the design of the book is superb.
This book was ramblings and musings of the author. It wasn't a workshop. I was slightly disappointed. The book contained John's Howe's art history, examples of his art, but it definitely is mis -titled. It isn't a "workshop" where you, a student, would learn his techniques.
