Drawing is the starting point for all forms of art as well as being an important skill in itself. This comprehensive step-by-step guide covers all the major subject areas from landscapes to life drawing and provides instruction in a wide range of media including charcoals, chalks, pastels, coloured pencils, inks and graphite. The unique approach of this book is so simple that the reader can start immediately on original and exciting projects. Each section has practical information on materials and equipment and includes a gallery of work by other artists to inspire the beginner. The different approaches to figure drawing are looked at, as is the history of the study of anatomy for art and the emergence of the female nude as a painting subject. Still life, animal and landscape studies are explored through different media. The techniques and projects cover all aspects of drawing, from line and wash to using water-soluble pencils and sgraffito. Packed full of practical advice, techniques and projects, How to Draw provides a sound basis for expanding skills and teaches absolute beginners how to produce accurate and accomplished pieces.
