The art of responsive drawing
For undergraduate Foundation, Fine Arts, Illustration, and Graphic Design courses in Basic or Advanced Drawing. More a “how-to-see-it” than a “how-to-do-it” book, The Art of Responsive Drawing, 6E explores the disguises and characteristics of shapes and forms in nature, and it examines the visual elements and the relational, moving, and emotive forces that constitute the language of drawing. Clear and objective, it offers an intensive examination of vital drawing processes and concepts, an in-depth analysis of exceptional drawings by old and contemporary artists, and suggested exercises to enhance students' grasp of important measurable and dynamic phenomena.
