Publisher Comments:

Drawing, the brand-new title in Barron's growing Creative Techniques series, presents instruction to serious art students and experienced amateurs who want to expand and improve their personal repertory of techniques. Drawing presents 14 radically different, highly individual approaches to the art of drawing figures, landscapes, and even abstract images. Examples are rendered in both monochrome and color media--charcoal, India ink, colored inks, crayons, and pastel chalks. Illustrations that show divergent styles and techniques are by well-known artists, ranging from the impressionist Edgar Degas and twentieth-century master Pablo Picasso, to pop artist Robert Rauschenberg and abstract expressionist Cy Twombly. These and other examples are analyzed and followed up with instruction that will guide students toward achieving the demonstrated effects. As students master different and original approaches to drawing, they are inspired to develop their own imaginative modes of personal expression. The book's introductory section lists and explains the various drawing tools and other equipment that they will need.

CREATIVE TECHNIQUES

DRAWING

14 Distinctive Approaches to Drawing with More than 100 Creative Ideas

This book will inspire serious students to expand their repertory of techniques and explore fourteen entirely different approaches to drawing that were first pioneered by famous artists of past generations. Students will find step-by-step instructions for each approach. Then they are encouraged to progress beyond simple copying by adapting elements from different approaches to create a language that is distinctively their own. Illustrations of representative drawings derive from original works by distinguished artists as different from each other as the impressionist Edgar Degas, the twentieth-century master Pablo Picasso, the pop artist Robert Rauschenberg, and the abstract expressionist Cy Twombly. Representative works by these and other artists are analyzed and explained in a way that will encourage students to develop exciting new modes of personal expression.
