On Drawing / Edition 2by Roger Winter
Pub. Date: 12/01/1997
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
This book is for the beginning art major or for the general student who wants to learn more about drawing. Drawing teachers and advanced art students may also find it useful. While this book is about underlying visual principles and not naturalistic styles, it relies heavily on the study of objects, as mutual experiences in that world heighten communication between student and teacher and student and student. Through the study of objects, the student of drawing discovers how to see more intensely, compose, use the materials of drawing, work intuitively, and criticize. The chapters, as arranged, provide a coherent system of study. But regardless of any particular approach, all the ideas presented are meant to help gain an intimate, working knowledge of what the verb 'to draw' actually means.
