#2 lead PENCIL,
ART PAPER:I STARTED DRAWING ON BROWN PAPER BAGS!
DEVELOP PATIENCE with YOURSELF: PERFECTION COMES LATER!
DESIRE TO DRAW. Drawing is to me an unexplained DESIRE to recreate from your mind; what surounds you.
Although I started drawing a a young age, FUN WITH A PENCIL WILL ALWAYS BE MY ART BIBLE". Especially when I'm going through an ARTISTIC DRY SPELL"
All I have to do to get motivated is by: DOING THESE REALLY SIMPLE LESSONS in this book!!
Recently; I received a letter from my younger brother who wished to learn how to draw. in his letter he explained that: "DRAWING RELAXES ME and I want to lean to draw!" Of course he is in for a BIG SURPRISE---I just had to buy him a copy of: "FUN WITH A PENCIL!
There are many "Drawing Made Simple' books on the market today---BUT-- I found that they seem to have copied Andy Loomis's techniques or jump you into: GREY'S ANATOMY"
Unfortunately, Andy has passed on but his drawings of characters and people live on within the pages of his many art instructional books.
The Lessons are easy to do!
You may find yourself mesmerized by their FUN TO DO AND SIMPLICITY!! YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF SAYING:
"DID I DRAW THAT??"
"THANK YOU ANDY LOOMIS!"
I BELIEVE IN THIS BOOK SO MUCH THAT I'VE ALREADY PURCHASED TWO COPIES OF THIS BOOK!!
AFTER READING THE FIRST PAGE OF THIS BOOK---DON'T BLAME ME IF YOU GET HOOKED ON THE LESSONS!!
