How A New Way of Seeing Can Improve your Drawing SkillsBook - 2004
Draw Naturally proposes a new way of learning to see and draw with shapes that makes the process of drawing as simple as possible. Artists learn to translate three-dimensional subjects into big shapes, then to gradually add dimensionality and develop detail, an approach that is particularly effective for capturing life and action. Artists are taken through a series of exercises that teach them how to transform their new way of seeing into a variety of practical skills-including how to create an action line, break a large shape into smaller ones, simplify values, quick-sketch heads and faces, and capture the expressive character of trees and other landscape elements-eventually enabling them to create fully developed drawings.
