5.0 out of 5 stars Simple fun book on drawing
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit unimaginative
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 -...

This review is from: 20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things from Nature: A Sketchbook for Artists, Designers, and Doodlers (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing and fun, 5 Sept. 2014

This review is from: 20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things from Nature: A Sketchbook for Artists, Designers, and Doodlers (Paperback)
I haven't done much drawing since I had my children but this has got me interested again. Each subject has two pages dedicated to it with various ways of drawing each item. The drawings are not 'realistic' in style, but more like the kind you find on textiles, wrapping paper and other graphic designs. I found some of them similar to each other so there aren't always exactly 20 different ways to draw something, but I gave this 5 stars as it was still inspiring to me and got me doodling again.

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

I bought this to use for quilting inspiration. It contains many ideas with each section on a nature theme. I really enjoyed this book and am actually considering buying some of her others.

This book is a great source of inspiration & sheer fun. It's good to flip through just to enjoy or as a serious refernce for a guide to getting the required effect. I work in metal & textiles & the illustrations lend themselves well to media other than pen, pencil etc.
