On the Art of Drawing

£14.99

Product description

This hard back copy of the book has its dust cover which has yellowed over time and is a little worn at the top and bottom of the spine. The boards of the are grey in colour, with the title, author, and publisher in gold lettering on the spine. The end paper is also faded and has an inscription in pen on the top right corner.
This book is an informal textbook with illustrations by the author, published by Studio Vista Books. The author trained at the4 Slade School of Art, has worked in an engravers shop in Canada, and has contributed to most of America's leading magazines. His essentially practical advice and shrewd observations will be of great value to all artists, whether professional or amateur. illustrated with over 140 drawings and studies, his book gives clear description of the uses of various materials, of the processes of draftmanship, of drawing from life and from imagination, and of the 'art' of seeing.
To Robert Fawcett, drawing is both a language and a personal experience, but it is also a skill that, with some training or effort, anybody can acquire once they have learnt to see; and a person who draws need be no member of a talented or esoteric group.
Here, then is a book that is more than a textbook or an introduction to the subject, based as it is on the experience of one of the most diverse of modern illustrators.
