Publisher Comments:

“Drawing is a skill that anyone can learn,” says the author in his introduction—and this book has been teaching that skill for twenty-five years. Now it has been elegantly redesigned to start teaching to the next generation of artists. Lots of books are great for the more advanced sketcher—but Starting to Draw is the best book for the absolute beginner, packed with fundamentals and simple building blocks of success. Time-tested text and clear, easy-to-follow drawings make this book the classic that every artist needs. Guidance on everything from equipment and warming up to drawing basic shapes to demonstrations on capturing landscapes, figures, and still lifes, Starting to Draw sets emerging artists off on a great adventure of learning and creating.
