Format: Paperback
As a latecomer to drawing I have acquired a number of books on 'how to draw'. Jack Hamm's book on landscapes and scenery is by far the best. It explains in wonderfully simple terms how to compose and design a picture. Then follow hundreds of small sketches which show how to draw trees, sky, water, rocks, clouds etc, and then put it all together, in such a simple and straightforward matter that within a very short space of time (couple of weeks) you are able to produce very acceptable work. This book answers the beginner's question 'Yes, but how do you start to draw?' and gives you tremendous confidence to get out there and do it!
The whole approach is written in a a fresh and engaging manner. A great instruction book.

This is a great book to learn about the principles of landscape drawing. It demonstrates how to "guide the eye" through the scenery and how to "hold the balance". Very simple and understandable sketches demonstrate the change of mood or the difference between "this image is right" and "there is something wrong". The impact of light and shade is demonstrated excellently or how to paint a landscape during the different times of the day in the different type of light.
Beside the small demonstation sketches are very impressive, full scale examples given.

I absolutly love this book. The only disadvantage in my opinion is, that almost every image is drawn in a rough soft pencil stile as seen on the front cover. I still strongly recommend this book for all those who like to learn how to composite and balance a landscape image.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most solid I have ever read on composition. It really explains things well and the illustrations are quick, simple and very effective.

It was also dirt cheap! a total bargain at the price!

I regularly buy art books as there's always more to learn, but this is one I come back to all the time. It's useful for more than landscapes too in my opinion.

Format: Paperback
All of Jack Hamms' books are absolutely packed with information, observations, and examples. The amount of educational value at the low published price is phenomenal. Less than the cost of a decent pad of drawing paper! Go on, buy it.

Concise and clear, with a multitude of examples and direction. I consider this book as essential to sketching as my pencil and paper.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Packed to the brim with advice and tips and examples.

Its a rather old book and this shows in many of the images which have a dated feel to them.

For someone who wants to develop their drawing skills this covers a lot of ground.
