Draw with Confidence and Creativity

Creativity occurs in action: It is not a trait; it is something you do. To be creative, you need to engage in the art-making process. When you are in the flow, you shift out of the future and into the present, making connections, generating variations and surrendering to the process. Keys to Drawing With Imagination is a course for artists in how to take something, do something to it, and make something new.

Best-selling author Bert Dodson, author of the best-selling Keys to Drawing, is back with fun techniques and mind-stretching strategies to get you drawing better and more imaginatively than you ever have before. In every section, he offers you basic guidelines that help you channel your creative energies in the right direction. Before you know it, you'll lose yourself in the process, enjoying the experience as you create something gratifying and worthwhile.

The subjects covered in this hands-on book are as vast as the imagination itself. Through 36 exercises and 13 step-by-step demonstrations, you'll explore how to:

Take your doodling from mindless to masterful

Create your own reality by crumbling, melting or breaking objects

Flip the familiar on its ear to create something utterly original

Experiment with visual paradox and metaphor

Tell vivid stories through the details in your drawings

Play with patterns to create captivating compositions

Build your drawings by borrowing ideas from different cultures

Develop a theme in your work

Along the way, Dodson offers you priceless advice on the creative process culled from his 60 years of drawing and teaching. For additional inspiration and encouragement, he even includes the work of well-known artists. So what are you waiting for? Grab this book and start drawing You'll be amazed at what you can create.
