About the author (1973)

Rudy de Reyna, renowned artist and art teacher, has written extensively about art techniques for beginning and intermediate artists. Readers have been using his books for more than 20 years as a resource for developing their own unique artistic talents. de Reyna treats his many topics in a thorough and comprehensive manner, uses clear prose that is easily understood by the layman, and includes ample illustrations that supplement and demonstrate the techniques he describes. How to Draw What You See provides how-to directions for learning to recognize any object in one of the four basic shapes of cube, cylinder, cone, or sphere. After the reader has learned to recognize and draw the object's shape, de Reyna shows how to expand this skill to include other subjects such as people, landscapes, and still lifes. Some of de Reyna's other books include Creative Painting from Photographs, Acrylic Painting, Painting in Opaque Watercolor and four volumes on various aspects of Magic Realism techniques.
