An interesting look at drawing that goes beyond the conventional. Sketchbook projects at the end of each chapter reinforce the concepts taught and allow for further exploration and practice by the reader/student. A great textbook to have on your bookshelf.
This book is useful in not only art instruction, but in understanding how great art was created by showing and explaining examples of work from some of the masters such as Picasso, Rembrandt, Klee, Matisse, Pollock, Wyeth, O’Keefe and so on. . .
This is another art textbook from art school. I have it marked up but haven't looked at it since then. These books would certainly be an inspiration to draw again.
Inspired me to start drawing again.
