Portrait Revolution: Inspiration From Around the World For Creating Art In Multiple Mediums And Styles by Julia L. Kay, is based on an international collaborative art project of portrait artwork using a variety of mediums such as oil paint, watercolor, pastels, pencil, pen, etc.

Having always had interest in art and especially portrait drawings, I was very excited about the book.  What better way to expand my horizon into this forte than to view other artist’s work.  Sadly to say, I was left a bit disappointed.  Overall the level of the portraits is on the amateurish side.  Also, there aren’t very much tips or overall explanation to give insight into improving one’s own artwork.
