Listing Detail Tabs

To attain any level of proficiency in drawing, the beginner must first learn how to see the world in a pictorial rather an a three-dimensional way. AN INTRODUCTION TO DRAWING, written by a practising artist with many years' experience in art lecturing, teaches these basic perceptual skills through a range of simple exercises.

Each chapter is devoted to a particular pictorial subject matter - landscape drawing, still life, townscape and buildings, nature, portrait and the figure, and animals - and tackles the individual challenges each subject entails.

Guidelines are given on the choice of different subject matter, and the different drawing techniques are introduced - continuous line drawing, cross-hatching, tonal effects, and pointillism. Step-by-step instructions and colour photographs lead the reader through a variety of drawing projects, using the full range of drawing media - including pencil, pen and ink, charcoal, crayon and pastels.

A separate section clearly and concisely explains the basic theories and concepts dealt with throughout, such as perspective, picture plane, tonal space and composition. A thorough review of materials and equipment, presentation techniques and how to frame your finished works, completes this invaluable, fully illustrated study aid.
