If you have ever wanted to learn to draw but lacked the confidence to start, then this is the book for you.
An accomplished artist with many years of experience in teaching, author Carole Massey will have even the most hesitant of beginners picking up the skills and techniques needed to start drawing. The book is a complete drawing course, designed to help you progress from simple techniques such as lines, circles, squares, and ellipses, through to capturing landscapes, figures, and buildings.
Drawing for the Absolute Beginner offers numerous simple step-by-step demonstrations as well as larger projects. Outline tracings are provided of the more complex drawings that you can transfer straight onto your paper. Most of the artworks in the book are created using pencil, but the author also uses ink, ballpoint pen, pastel pencil, and water-soluble pencils to encourage you to experiment with other media too. By the end of the book, you will have learned all you need to take your drawing skills further and become an accomplished artist in your own right.
