There's no reason to be intimidated by art; creating a compelling drawing
can be nothing more than breaking down the process into a few simple stages.
This book shows you how to consider the shape of an object, render light and
shadow, and make your drawings more realistic by understanding perspective.
With plentiful examples, demonstrations of various techniques, and inspiring
galleries of master drawings, Teach Yourself VISUALLY Drawing will bring out
your inner artist. You progress from basic shapes and still lifes to
portraits, the human form, and landscapes. You'll be amazed at what you
can create with just a pencil, paper, and a little instruction.
