Learning to draw is very much like mastering a sport or a musical instrument: to advance your ability, you must practice, practice, practice. But in practicing, what, specifically should you draw? This convenient workbook contains the answer: forty basic and new exercises that reinforce the five basic skills of drawing. Each provides appropriate subject matter, brief instruction, sample drawings, a ready-made format in which to draw, and helpful post exercise pointers. In addition to portrait drawing with pencil, you will explore new subject matter - still life, landscape, imaginative drawing - using alternative mediums such as pen and ink, charcoal, and conte crayon. If you are taking a drawing class, have already received instruction through a book or course, or just prefer to learn by doing, this volume of guided practice will be a permanent record of your work that offers the perfect opportunity to hone your skills and expand your repertoire.Biografía del autor:
