Art of SketchingBook - 2007
With just a few bold, quick, and spontaneous strokes, a sketch can capture the spirit of any subject. This outstanding guide--which follows The Art of Drawing , The Art of Drawing the Human Body , and The Art of Drawing Landscapes --teaches everything a novice needs to know to master the art of sketching. Richly illustrated with close-ups of works in progress, it offers strategies for composing intuitively, gaining control of a linear drawing, producing shadows and textures, using tones, and many other vital techniques. There are discussions of tools, plus advice on working outdoors and choosing a topic that's appropriate for a beginner. As students learn, they'll produce both natural and urban landscapes, as well as human figures, alone and in a crowd.
