Overview

Drawing is an essential skill that introduces the first step into all other visual arts. Beginners start immediately producing accomplished pieces: 38 original, exciting projects that free you to practice and perfect your skills without dreary routine exercises. All major subject areas are covered, from still-lifes and landscapes to animals and life drawings, in a variety of media including charcoals, chalks, pastels, colored pencils, inks, and graphite. Practical advice on technique accompanies each project, with specialized galleries to inspire you. Along the way, you explore many different approaches to figure drawing, including the stages through which the female nude has emerged as a painting subject and how science is transforming the way painters treat human anatomy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
New Holland Publishers has joined in the trend of cobbling together a single volume from several of its previously published books. Thus, more than half of this far-from-complete drawing guide deals with human anatomy and virtually none of it with architecture. Libraries would be better off purchasing some of the many original works on the subject, like Rudy De Reyna's How To Draw What You See (reviewed above) or Lee Hammond's Lifelike Drawing with Lee Hammond.
