Synopsis: Drawing for Pleasure contains examples of the work of fourteen artists, in a wide range of media, including pencil, charcoal, Conté, felt-tipped pen, crayon and wash. A valuable work of reference for anyone learning to draw, it gives sound practical instruction on line, tone, perspective and composition. It also demonstrates to the more experienced student how to capture the mood of a subject by subtle methods, which can only be imparted by experts who are also teachers. Anyone who reads this book will find that drawing is not only the firm basis of painting, architecture and sculpture, but is also a satisfying art form in itself.
