Basics of Drawing
The Ultimate Guide for Beginners
By Leonardo Pereznieto (Author)
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!
