About the Author
Helen Birch is a journalist and artist based in the United Kingdom.
"Employing the formula of examples + explanations = inspiration, journalist and artist Birch presents the work of dozens of practicing contemporary artists, highlighting prominent techniques so that the reader can emulate and build upon them. Illustrations can be found on nearly every page, including many close-up views that break down for the reader what is happening in the more elaborate drawings. The book also contains category and visual indexes that will be helpful for those who prefer to skip around rather than read from start to finish. VERDICT There is something in this guide for advanced, intermediate, and beginning artists alike." - Library Journal
