This book is designed to make art logical, simple, doable and fun. Improving your artistic prowess can be as simple as picking and choosing from a lavish array of simple tricks to improve your skills, or as involved as going through the book step by step to arrive at a point where you can draw what you see with confidence and pride.
Weve never seen another book like this. It is being used by homeschoolers to give their children the skills to illustrate their journals and assignments (and entertain themselves!). College classes are using it as a textbook to learn scientific illustration. And its being used by ordinary people to learn how to do what theyve always dreamed of to be able to draw exactly what they see.
If art instructional books that promised a lot but left you scratching your head and filling trash baskets with wadded-up sketches have put you off before, try this one for a refreshing change.
We think this unique book is going to give Betty Roberts book, Drawing From the Right Side of the Brain, some heavy competition.
