Getting the measurements to draw a thing is far from my idea of an artistic endeavour. But getting a thing right as it is, is a goal. And without such positional aids, it is hard to get anything on the paper, much like the blank page staring at the writer. While looking for angles in the picture, you are no longer thinking about how or what of the picture can you transfer onto your page. With so many details, you are only more confident of getting the drawing right. After all this study of a pear, I can appreciate still life drawings and paintings.
If you dont know about values, then you really need this book. I could use the steps in the book to draw profile pictures and landscapes from a magazine lying around. After observing the skys gradations in a picture, I saw that a sunrise picture on the back of a grocery truck is not just one colour.
The lesson on bridging reminded of creation of music.
The authors renderings from the pictures are very instructional.
