The instruction in this book is clear enough. My problems with it are twofold:
1. There is very little variation in the type of art being created.
2. All of the art is the author's own. He is very good with architectural drawings, but everything else left me cold.

Unless you really like exactly what the author is producing, this book doesn't offer a lot of ideas or inspiration.

Probably a good intro to pen and ink drawing, but the drawings are not as sophisticated as I'd hoped. Books by Hogarth, Watson or Graves have more to offer, even though they don't cover watercolor (that I know of).
