Description

Viewing drawing as a unique art form, this book was deigned to simplify and clarify the instruction of drawing for beginning learners in a manner that allows for specificity in instrumentation and concept. It discusses drawing as an underlying structural principle in relation to other art forms, with its own particular language rooted in direct tactile experience of media and the analytical investigation of the visible. Readers will gain an understanding of the basic workings of drawing by finding connections between natural visual phenomena and the more abstract principles of design and pictorial construction.show more
