The Sketch Book for the Artist
Title: The Sketch Book for the Artist
Author: Sarah Simblet
An introduction to the art of drawing explores a wide variety of media and techniques for both novice and experienced artists, with practical guidelines on such topics as shape, shading, portraiture, architectural renderings, nature, and perspective.
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, the Sketch Book for the Artist aims to widen the reader’s understanding of drawing and to inspire them to pick up a pencil and draw. Alongside drawings by famous artists, the book uses the author’s own sketch book as a way to examine attitudes and demonstrate specific techniques.
