How to See How to Draw

Code: 201676

This book begins with learning how to observe- to see whats really there, not what you want to see. Observation is a skill thats learned and practiced, and one of the hallmarks of successful artists is that they know how to look at a subject with clear vision unfettered by preconceived notions or old habits. Using reference photos, diagrams, sketches and comparative examples, the author shows you first how to observe an object, and second how to translate that observation into an accurate rendering using graphite pencils, charcoal pencils and pen and ink.

Review from The Artist October 2010

Claudia Nice has a characteristic realistic drawing style, which she has developed over time and has taught in workshops, demonstrations and seminars worldwide. She has written over 20 art instruction books and this book is a thoroughly written and well-illustrated manual, giving valuable advice about approaches and methods to help you hone your drawing skills. The book takes readers through all the basics, such as the importance of observation, mark-making, materials, building up shapes, comparing angles and proportions, perspective and tonal values, and through a number of demonstrations, Claudia explains various significant stumbling areas, such as how to draw symmetrical objects, using grids and avoiding or correcting mistakes. The whole book, in a useful ring bound format, gives some useful and comprehensive suggestions, tips and instructions to assist anyone focusing on improving their drawing abilities. Susie Hodge
