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.
