Not Very Helpful or Inspiring. If you have average drawing ability and are ready to see dramatic improvement in your drawing, or if you are at a point in your life where you feel driven to create and dedicate yourself to learning how to draw, put this book down and read Betty Edward’s "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” instead.

The exercises were a bit remedial, but that's obviously what I needed. This was excellent for self-teaching; no instructor required. She comes with the purchase--AND she keeps her website current for further study!

This book should be called Drawing for People Who Have Somewhat of a Clue. This book is not for beginners.
Although the author made some good points and gave some good advice, she seems to forget that not everyone has been drawing for years. For example, the section on shading needs to be "dumbed down" a bit.

This is my very first book and I really enjoyed both writing and creating the over 400 illustrations.

A decent book on drawing, a little less exciting than some of the other intro to arts books.

Great book for anyone who wants to learn how to draw.
