Praise for the first edition:
“This is simply the best beginners’ drawing book available. Garcia gently teaches how to see like an artist and then leads the student from creative exercises (recording shapes upside down), through “turning edges into objects,” and finally to detailed still life and facial drawings.” –Library Journal
