Publisher Comments:

SEE like an artist, and draw like a pro

If you think you can't draw, it's all in your head ... Every time you pick up a pencil, a battle rages between the two sides of your brain: Your analytical brain, which wants to generalize and take shortcuts; and your visual brain, which sees it like it is.

This innovative guide helps the good guy always win

Following the success of his first book, Painting with Your Artist's Brain (North Light Books), Carl Purcell shows that the secret to creating true-to-life renderings—and overcoming the most common drawing problems—is silencing your bossy logical nature and letting your artistic side do what it does best. Thirteen interactive exercises and 10 step-by-step demonstrations lead you on an in-depth exploration of essential drawing skills: seeing values correctlysearching for relationships of angle, size and positiondefining form with line and edgeexploring the relationship between objects and spacetying everything together with value patternsmaking the most of your sketchbookYou'll take the same observation-based approach whether you're drawing a pear, a portrait or a landscape. No subject will be beyond your reach, and you'll be amazed at your sudden mastery of drawing

Synopsis:

Focusing on why people have problems drawing, Purcell presents more than 12 step-by-step drawing demonstrations; 15-plus "From the Artist's Brain" tip sidebars; and multiple exercises, checklists, and technique summaries to help readers keep track of their artistic progress.
