Learning to draw is easy! Develop all your basic skills. Then expand your creative talents. Attempt some simple forms first. Then experiment with perspective, from the horizon to the invisible vanishing point. Master composition--including modeling a figure--as well as light and shadow. Working on an animal drawing helps you with lines and spots, while landscape drawings provide insights into direct color. It's so simple, people will think you've been drawing for years.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gollwitzer's book was originally published in Germany in 1959 and thus is in the classic, linear, literate mode of training. It hits all the points of the drawing media: the drawing surface, seeing and discovering, composition, light and shade, landscape, architecture, portraiture, and the methods of the masters. It's a full-year drawing course for beginners and deserves to be in all collections, especially at this price. Sanmiguel's offering briefly covers some of the same basics, but it emphasizes color and the digitally driven style of most modern texts: it is heavy on rapid, scattershot illustration and light on text. Nonetheless, it is a good volume but not nearly as comprehensive as Gollwitzer's title or Ian Simpson's Drawing School: The Complete Course. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
