9780030073120: A Guide to Drawing

Truly a classic, A GUIDE TO DRAWING, Fifth Edition builds on the idea that mastery of traditional skills is fundamental to expressive drawing. It allows beginning, advanced and specialized drawing students to master basic skills and to use them creatively, whether working under the direction of an instructor or on their own. Perspective receives the most systematic and thorough treatment available in any drawing textbook. Nearly 400 master drawings (with 13 color plates) represent many periods, techniques and subject matters, filling the need to integrate art history with studio experience. Over 170 valuable studio projects promote understanding of the material, technical comptence, and control and confidence in both beginning and advanced students. Sketchbook activities in most chapters encourage a spontaneous approach to drawing and seeing when students are working outside the structured classroom or studio environment. Illustrations for both the part and chapter openers by Duane Wakeham.

Product Description:

One of the most respected and widely used books in its field, A GUIDE TO DRAWING is a classic, comprehensive, and systematic introduction to the art of drawing, focusing on the mastery of traditional skills as the basis for expressive drawing.

Review:

"The three greatest strengths of A GUIDE TO DRAWING are its attitude that drawing is a significant activity that is necessary to understanding the world both visually and conceptually, its clarity in explaining the complex issue of perspective, and its ability to communicate the reasons (historical, cultural, pragmatic or personal) why various drawing strategies exist. A fourth strength is the chapter-related drawing exercises that help to clarify--through drawing--the content of each chapter."
