Drawing Problems and Solutions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This invaluable handbook for all drawing students takes a practical problem-and-solution approach to a range of popular subjects, showing common mistakes and how to rectify them. The book is divided into twelve themed sections to help teach specific areas of interest. Each section contains either three or four spreads showing the failings common among beginners. Typical mistakes are shown on the left-hand page with annotations by the author highlighting what the problem areas are. On the facing page the author shows how a better, more realistic depiction can be achieved, looking at each component and providing comments for guidance.

After the problem-and-solution pages the author shows how the drawing techniques covered can be combined to produce a complete picture which integrates all the lessons learned. The information throughout is presented clearly with plenty of useful annotations. The handy, size also allows readers to take it wherever their sketching leads them.

* The only book that shows the typical mistakes made by drawing students and how to overcome them
* Covers the most popular areas of drawing--from trees and landscapes to flowers, still life and animals
* Uses special problem-and-solutions spreads followed by a demonstration that combines the skills acquired
