Overview


This unusual book serves several different purposes, starting with its guaranteed appeal to both professionals and amateurs who like to pick up a pencil and draw. Art students seeking a change of pace will respond to the authors' very informal approach, seeing the lessons as fun-to-do confidence builders that emphasize the value of creative freedom. Every exercise can be performed by artists at all levels of training and ability.

  • All exercises are designed to develop and improve hand-eye coordination
  • Each exercise focuses on a different approach to drawing precisely what the eye sees--rapid sketches of moving objects, detailed observation of tones and shadow, exercises that teach rules of perspective, and much more
  • A powerfully effective art course that never feels like a set of tedious drills

    Lessons can be completed using various media--pencil, ink, colored pencils, magic markers, or charcoal. Illustrations on every page in color and black and white.
