Overview


The format of this comprehensive four-part course for art students is based on drawing courses given at major art schools. Originally available as four separate smaller volumes, this much larger new book brings all four parts together in a complete program that teaches students every aspect of the art of drawing.
  • Part One. The Basics of Drawing --Discusses and illustrates the materials, the tools, and the fundamental principles of form, proportions, tonal ranges, and more.
  • Part Two. Line and Shading in Drawing --Controlling the width and intensity of lines in your drawings, and developing techniques that suggest dimension and surface textures.
  • Part Three. Light and Shadow in Drawing --The ways in which light falls on the artist's subject, and various methods for rendering light and shade to produce dramatic effects.
  • Part Four. Perspective Drawing --Understanding geometric principles that give drawings coherence, and seeing subjects from fresh points of view to create surprising results.

Each chapter presents Learning-by-Doing exercises and concludes with Sketchbook and Analysis sections. Those sections encourage students to isolate parts of their compositions, correct errors, and work out solutions to the problems they encountered in their exercises. This instructive book is filled with color photos and illustrations.

    An amazing book

    I have never drawn before and I admire people who have the talent. I bought this book which was very easy to read and easy to understand. I was glad that I found this book. unfortunately I wanted to learn human drawing but this book doesn't teach me how to draw humans so I returned it. I highly recommand it to someone who is interested to learn basic drawing.
