I am not a natural artist, in fact I can barely draw at all; at least I thought I couldn't until, quite by chance, I happened upon Draw Water and Other Things. Intrigued by the title I picked it up, looked through it briefly and later put pencil to paper; the results were astonishing, and though I shall never rival a serious artist I can now draw a number of things that I would have made a hash of before.
The system is effortless; you take basic, simple shapes that anyone can draw and then add to them until you have a mountain range, or a tree or a helicopter or an elephant or....the choice is huge.
More important than the response of a somewhat grizzled adult I gave a copy to my five year old grand-daughter, already well into colouring but not yet free drawing: she fell on the book with delight and has been devouring it, producing better and better pictures which she then lavishly colours.
Although this is not the sort of book I normally review on my website I cannot resist reviewing this one, in the hope that it may bring a new skill to those who, like me, had dismissed their artistic abilities, as well as being the means of giving a facility to children that will greatly enhance their childhood.

Although this book is predominantly for children's use, it's actually good for adults as well. It gives simple to follow guidelines on how to make certain basic shapes of , for example, hands. I'm glad I bought it.

after giving this to my 8 year old son and seeing what fun he had with it, this book has become a standard in my present store - i have given it to kids aged 5 to 10 and all of them have loved it, and been so proud of the outcomes when they have given it a try. what is particularly exciting is that once they have started feeling good about their work, the techniques it offers allows them to move off in entirely new directions without having to consult the book - a great gift for many ages, i thoroughly recomment it.

I bought this book as it was recommended on my daughters school notice board.. And how happy I am that I did! Not only a great present for my 7 and 5 year old but for me too! My daughter was amazed that by following the simple steps in this book she could draw objects that even "mummy cant draw"! Linda has some nice tricks to get EVERYONE drawing and a very original approach to art. It is a great book to buy for the whole family and something to do together. You will not be sorry!

Bought this for my 9 year old and have been really impressed with the results! Clear diagrams, the process is broken down into managable 'bitesized' bits and hey presto...your child is suddenly an artist. Makes art accessible to all, promotes confidence and above all is great fun. This book is now being used at my child's school as a valuable resource too - which speaks volumes!

Finally a realist way of teaching children how to draw. An excellent book that provides an easy way to get started. It is very well explained and the diagrams are very clear.I would highly recommend it.

My daughter was given this book as a gift and she loves it. She enjoys being able to follow each step independently and create a really effective picture within minutes. As she is only 5 years old she loves showing her friends and family her skills and seeing how impressed they are with her efforts. Linda's book is extremely well presented and packed full of different themes. My daughter has learnt to draw castles, ballerinas, flowers, trees, animals and so much more. A great gift - keeps children occupied and happy!

We took this book on a family holiday with the plan to keep some of the younger crowd occupied for an afternoon... but once we got going exciteable children, truculent teenagers, parents and grandparents alike were all trying their hand at it.
There's something about the way this book is put together that breaks down the mystery around being able to draw and makes is accessible and fun for everyone, no matter what they may think of their own ability.
