Walter Foster imprint, it's 40 pages and available in paperback format. This appears to be a reformat and re-release of material first released in 1997 with the same title by the same author.
The titles in this series are all formatted in a similar manner and this one is no exception.
A short general introduction (10%) covers tools and materials including
pencils, paper, blending tools, etc. The intro is followed by a
group of non-specific tutorials on graphite techniques, shading, light,
perspective. The following tutorial chapters are specific for different
subjects (landscapes) and include specific tutorials: clouds, rocks, trees & branches, etc,
leading to some full studies. There is also a very abbreviated tutorial
on rendering some
surfaces and finishes. It should be noted that the style of these
renderings is very retro/traditional in a style which was popular in the
early to mid 20th century, much of that popularity springing from the
art of Mr. Powell himself.
I like these tutorial booklets, they're inexpensive and full of useful
info for artists looking for improvement in their own work. It's nice to
see them getting a re-release for a new audience of artists and
Four stars - for what it covers and for a very short tutorial guide, it does the job admirably well.
Disclosure: I received an early eARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
