"We see other people's faces more than we see our own. I think it is a beautiful gift for us to draw or paint someone and vice versa. When someone draws us we see an aspect of ourselves as seen through other people's eyes." Nini Teves Lapuz , USA .
This quote really stuck with me after reading Portrait Revolution by Julia L. Kay. I have taken on an art challenge this year to draw daily. This challenge has improved my art, but also has shown me how easy it is to get into a single rhythm.
What I enjoyed most about Portrait Revolution is the amount of reference and tips I gained from reading and absorbing the book. I gained inspiration and ideas of different paths to take with my art. I would say this book is a great reference book to explore different mediums of art. Also I enjoyed the section of the book where the artists got to speak about themselves and their art and share tips to the reader.
If your looking for a more how to book then I would say this isn't the book for you. But if you are looking to branch out of your comfort zone and try new paths then I would for sure say grab this book and dig in.
I am so happy to have received this book from blogging for books for free for my honest review. I will cherish this book and use it this year to push myself and my art skills daily.
