The Drawing Book
The Drawing Book aims to widen readers' understanding of drawing, and to inspire them to pick up a pencil, a pen, or a charcoal stick, and discover their visual world. The Drawing Book takes its journey of investigation beyond the shores of Fine Art, covering a wide range of themes from portraits to plant studies and still life, and showing how to tackle each subject in a variety of different ways. From quick pencil sketches to fully finished colour wash studies, each technique is skilfully demonstrated by the author in drawing classes throughout the book. Alongside drawings by famous Masters, the book uses the artist's drawing book as the centre of its investigation, examining attitudes and demonstrating techniques that will excite the imagination and enhance the skills of the reader. Sarah Simblet brings her expertise as an artist and teacher, using her own work to demonstrate the 'how to' aspects of drawing.
