The Drawing Book

£7.99

Product description

"The Drawing Book is a sketchbook to draw with, a treasury to explore, and a constant companion to turn to for inspiration and advice. The book deals with all the skills of drawing - clearly, authoritatively, and with humour. Special sections are devoted to media, techniques, and composition. Traditional subjects, such as landscape, trees, portraits, and still life are treated in an original and highly imaginative way. And particular care is taken to show the expressive possibilities of every part of the human body. The Drawing Book makes plain that it is never too late or too early to begin. Jeffery Camp shows you how to take delight in and extend your drawing skills with a wide range of media, techniques and subject areas - whether using chalks or charcoal, thin or incisive lines, whether drawing trees, figures, animals, still life, the real or the surreal... Ultimately, his aim is for you 'to be able to draw anything present in the visible world or in the imagination with no more inhibition than you had as a child'. The Drawing Book will appeal to old and young alike - to student and teacher, practising artist and art lover. Its unique blend of practical advice, intimacy and enthusiasm will make this the most useful and popular of all books on the subject."

Book in very good condition.
