How to Paint and Draw
By Bodo W. Jaxtheimer

This book is fully illustrated in a very striking and helpful way with 450 illustrations, including 300 in colour. Apart from the many pictures which show the beginner what he/she can achieve and how to achieve it, there are also reproductions of well-known paintings to illustrate points of composition and technique, diagrams illustrating the relationships of colours to each other, anatomical studies, examples of such technique as etching and engraving, and illustrations showing the best way to stretch and prepare canvases.

The eternal question 'How do I actually start?' is answered fully and concretely and illustrated with series of pictures showing step by step how a painting or drawing is built up. The scope of the book is wide, for it includes an invaluable survey of implements and materials; the groundwork of anatomical drawing, both human and animal; plant structure; architectural drawings and landscape composition; still-life; abstract art; caricature; lettering.

From this book the beginner will learn to enjoy painting and drawing actively, and both the trained and the untrained will gain a better understanding of the arts.
