This is and incredible book on painting portraits in watercolor. The artist starts by showing different head positions that lead to interesting portraits. Then explains several design principles and give examples of portraits painted using these principles which help in the development of portraits with plenty of character not just the average flesh tone portraiture. He also discusses materials, includes demos and talks about what to do with your finished work. I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's difficult to find at a reasonable price, but thanks to this website I got pretty lucky and I got a used book that look absolutely brand new.
