How to turn zero skills into proficient artistry in just 30 minutes a day

Created for aspiring artists whose work never even made it onto their mother’s refrigerator, this handbook contains an accessible, step-by-step program for learning how to draw. This revised edition breaks the process down into three distinct stages—the first presents the key techniques that form the core of the process; the second focuses solely on texture; and the third outlines how to select and use photographs to be used as references for drawing. Designed as a self-study workbook, this handbook provides clear, specific instructions that eliminate guesswork and enable amateurs to master drawing techniques in no time. Gridded exercise pages make it easy to complete the lessons right in the book.


"Simple steps that make drawing easy." —The Washington Post
