Learn how to draw accurately - whether to make realistic finished drawings or to create a solid foundation for painting.
Whatever stage you're at with your drawing or painting, this book will quickly help you develop your artistic ability. You'll learn the essential skills that will become second nature and that you will use time and time again in all your work.
With over 300 illustrations and clear explanations and instructions, you'll soon realise that perspective isn't difficult to learn after all and this alone will bring immediate results in your work. You'll also learn about materials, line and tone, light and shade, composition, texture and there's a large section of hints and tips which will improve your drawing even further.
