   Not for beginners
However, I am just starting out, and it is very complex. It is a nice good, with lots of good information, Garton said. It is just not easy for a beginner like me to learn how to play the guitar.
   For the Intellect.
If you are an older begginer this is a must-have, not only it teaches you how to draw properly but it tells you why you STOPPED. If you just want to learn to draw by practice then get complete Idiot's guide to drawing by Lisa Lenard. The Idiot's pretty much copies concepts and methods, but without the detailed explanation and science behind it, specially if you are young and don't want to read too much. The method is the same, except that it works better with older PCs.
   Excellent instruction for anybody
I used this book years ago to teach a summer school art class to a high schooler who needed a credit to graduate. They were not artists nor were they even artistically inclined, it said. Thanks to some of the exercises in this book, what they were able to do was truly amazing, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Great tool for self-improvement, Bruno said.

This edition of this book is the best of all editions—henceforth Betty Edwardsunfortunately seems to try to sell and create gimmicks whereas in this edition she is just speaking the truth.
   This is the most effective drawing course.
Ms. Smith goes into too much detail about the basic premise for most aspiring artists. But, if followed carefully, the results are amazing. I've used the book for my own development and for teaching children.
   You know you can do it!
We have a neighbor's child who wishes to learn we are recommending the same book.
   great book
