I really love this book. Unlike most of the art instruction books in the Seattle Public Library the author does not insist upon realism. Jane wants her students to paint and draw from their imaginations only. Resulting in wonderful surrealistic Beautiful Faces.
This technique can be used for anything the artist can imagine as well as faces. Landscapes, buildings, animals even space aliens and their spaceships what ever you can think up you can paint or draw.
