Review:

"The three greatest strengths of A GUIDE TO DRAWING are its attitude that drawing is a significant activity that is necessary to understanding the world both visually and conceptually, its clarity in explaining the complex issue of perspective, and its ability to communicate the reasons (historical, cultural, pragmatic or personal) why various drawing strategies exist. A fourth strength is the chapter-related drawing exercises that help to clarify--through drawing--the content of each chapter."

"A GUIDE TO DRAWING is the most comprehensive drawing text that I have seen. The content covers many subtle issues of drawing techniques, materials and attitudes that are helpful for the beginning and advanced students as well as mature artists."
