The author of this book believes that art should not just be a technical rendering of what one sees, but rather the focus should be on the thought process behind using drawing as langugae to express movement, appearance and life. His premise is that errors in drawing are unsuccessful attempts to fit life experience into preconceived standardized forms that resemble reality as little as a stick figure resembles the human form. Sections cover basic drawing, drawing the figure, light, various drawing techniques and colour. Topics include the nature of shadow, ways to focus the eyes, the world as optical illusion and forms in action and at rest
