DrawingBook - 2015
Each title in Barron's growing series of 101 Techniques art instruction manuals focuses on a specific art medium and teaches students and amateur artists through purely visual means. Relying on a progression of step-by-step captioned illustrations, 101 Techniques: Drawing offers easy-to-follow exercises that teach the basics of virtually every technique an artist needs to know in order to: compose still life paintings, landscapes, and portraits; build up volume through cross-hatching; frame the scope of each drawing; incorporate different kinds of perspective; and use color effectively. Formatted so that the reader can begin drawing right away, this book offers approaches that both the beginner and professional can utilize. Full-color illustrations throughout.
