I asked a friend to give me a review of this lesson and this is what she wrote:

I was honored to have Eni Oken ask if I would look at her tutorial and review it. I have to say - she's done an exceptional job. She gives a nice materials list, very thorough step-by-step instructions, starting with Shading individual leaves to a small group of leaves then a complete design. There are also templates included for you to practice on - small leaves, a small group and the complete design she uses. Well worth the small amount she charges for this PDF. If you are just delving into shading, or even if you have some experience with it, there is a lot of information and it's a great reference to have in your library. Highly Recommend!!!!!
