I purchased this book because I am beginning to paint portraits and wished for some help with colors and techniques. I loved reading this book and found many of the suggestions very helpful. However, Mr. Krieger's method of mapping tones seemed intricate and confusing to me. I was intrigued, though, by the recommended palette and ordered the colors. Butch Krieger is an amazing artist and it was well worth the price of the book to see how he produces such amazing results.
Disappointed. Didn't have what I was looking for. Not a bad book, but there are others that are better.
Not that great
Well done small book.
