Basics of Drawing

The Ultimate Guide for Beginners

by Leonardo Pereznieto



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Popular artist Leonardo Pereznieto—whose instructional YouTube videos have earned him millions of views and a devoted fan base—teaches beginners the fundamentals of traditional drawing.
In his first book “You Can Draw!” Leonardo Pereznieto helped artists recreate the realistic surfaces and textures that make his own work so popular. Now he’s going back to the very beginning to teach them the basics of drawing, covering first exercises, fundamental techniques, light and shading, composition, and perspective, and more. Loaded with information on materials, a glossary of essential terminology, and hundreds of illustrations, this illuminating guide includes such projects as a fall still life of fruit in a basket, with instructions on shape, shadow, and detail, as well as a cityscape, a landscape with depth of field, animals, train tracks, jewelry, and drawing with a message. Once you’ve mastered these basics, you can unleash your imagination on whatever subject you like!

Leonardo Pereznieto’s work has been exhibited internationally in museums and galleries, including in Florence, London, Paris, Seoul, Los Angeles, and New York. He is the author of You Can Draw! Simple Techniques for Realistic Drawings, has a hugely successful YouTube Channel (Fine Art Tips) with more than one million followers, and regularly conducts workshops and lectures worldwide, as well. He lives in Mexico City, Mexico.
