Review by Jackson's Staff
I absolutely adore this book! This book is designed to offer artists exercises and ideas to help them out of feeling stuck. If you are ever precious about your work, or nervous or tentative, and it shows in the work that you make, buy this book and go through the exercises that it offers. It is very well organised into different aspects of the drawing process, and discusses clearly the different approaches - such as contour drawing (putting down on to paper exactly what you see in a more 'localised manner') and gesture drawing (putting down your idea as a whole). I am running my first drawing course this Autumn and this book has given me a lot of ideas for what to teach and how to go about it. It is also very open and unsqueamish about looking at working from photographs, and how to do this in fresh and exciting ways. Not all of the exercises will be for everyone (as the name suggests, some of them are pretty out there!) but they certainly offer food for thought, and as you become more and more confident in your drawing ability, you may find that some of the more outlandish ideas are actually worth trying after all.It also encourages working in all kinds of media, and focuses a lot on ink, graphite, charcoal and oils (paints and pastels).Heartily recommended!By Lisa (Posted on 20/08/2015)
