About this title


An easy-to-follow program designed to teach amateur artists the fundamentals of drawing furnishes step-by-step instruction in the techniques of sketching simple geometric shapes, perspective, shading, shortening, movement, and style. 25,000 first printing.

From Library Journal:

Smith's fundamental premise is that anyone can learn to draw if one understands the basic principles of the craft and is willing to work hard at it. He persuasively argues that before photography drawing was a part of a young person's education and that sketching family portraits, landscapes, and buildings followed naturally. With surprising clarity and inspiration, Smith takes the student through the basics of materials, drawing fundamentals, simple projects, and advanced techniques. Colored pencils, inks, and paints add vibrant elements missing from older drawing manuals. Hundreds of books are available on this topic, but there are few general works of this quality for the beginner. Highly recommended for public collections; for a more advanced audience libraries should consider Ron Bowen's Drawing Masterclass: The Slade School of Fine Art (LJ 3/1/93).?Daniel J.
