To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book really isn't my style but I think others may like it. Some of the paintings though are not that stellar. Some of her work is very nice - so it seems inconsistant. I'm no professional artist but I would not be showcasing anything that looked like some of the pictures. I know there's a fine line in art instruction books to show pretty but ACCESSABLE drawings. I've been put off by books where the art was ridiculously complex and no way a beginner could achieve. But sometimes the expectations are set a little too low. I did glean some knowledge from this book however so I'm not disappointed that I bought it.
