Book Description

28 Feb 2000
Based on the author's own workshops, this title helps new artists create competent, eloquent drawings. A series of progressive lessons demonstrates such essential skills as recording edges, creating dimensions, adding accuracy, developing value, compositional balancing elements, and drawing the human face, both frontal and profile views. Step by step readers learn how to create a reasonable likeness of an object and give it spatial depth using simple black-and-white mediums such as pens, pencils, charcoal and graphite wash. Examples and tips for success from beginning students who have worked on the same material confirm readers' successes and allow them to consider the advice and impressions of others at the same level.

5.0 out of 5 stars drawing for the absolute & utter beginner 23 Mar 2011

The title of the book says it all. I haven't put pencil to paper to draw in over 50 years and I was absolutely amazed at my first attempts - I didn't think I had it in me!

I love this book. Now I want to finish doing all the workshop so I can buy the same but about using acrylics.
I tried may other different drawing manuals before and this one is the only one I stuck to and the only one I love. I highly recommend it!
