Product Description


"This series takes a novel, minimalist approach to art instruction. Each "20 Ways" title provides 45 spreads that are each filled with 20 small drawings on a given theme. REaders will find no step-by-step exercises here; however, each spread offers a variety of styles and techniques. Drawings range from the realistic to the cartoonish to the decorative, with a few rendered in color. The variety of drawing types is intended to inspire readers to experiment on their own. ASpiring artists can either copy drawings directly from the book or create their own variations on a theme. The latest two volumes in the series focus on nature and animals. 20 Ways To Draw a Tree presents many sophisticated, modern drawings of plants and flowers, executed with a surprising array of materials. Despite the title, 20 Ways To Draw a Cat includes all sorts of animals, such as hedgehogs, buffalo, fish, and zebras. VERDICT While Tree will appeal to teens or adult readers, Cat is most appropriate for younger audiences." "- Library Journal"

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple fun book on drawing 25 Nov 2013
This is part of their 20 Ways to Draw series of books which now includes Tulip, Dress, Butterfly, Cat and Doodle. They have various authors/artists for the books, and for this one it's Eloise Renouf.

The book's a 96-page paperback that you can open flat on the table for drawing.

There are no instructions so you basically draw what you see. The theme is actually nature. So besides drawing trees, you also get examples of birds, snails, flowers, berries, insects and even fish, and more. Each subject has 20 illustrated examples. The opposite page is usually blank for you to draw on.

The drawings are fun to look at and easy to draw along with. There are nice designs and varying styles.

It's a simple fun book for those looking to draw something.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit unimaginative 15 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to give me some ideas for simple contemporary shapes that might be helpful for printing. It is reasonably ok for that purpose although I think some of the topics were unimaginatve e.g. all the flowers were all round! I felt the author hadn't put a lot of thought into the images. I would have preferred more images rather than paying for blank pages - if I did decide to sell it on later then I wouldn't want to draw in it anyway.

My daughter (6) loves drawing and this book, with its fab illustrations provided the perfect inspiration for her. The book has blank pages for you to copy the art alongside. Very cool
