If you can write your name, you have enough touch to learn to draw. Let Mark Linley inspire you to pick up your pencil and create a magical masterpiece. His positive approach secures quick, accurate results and ever-growing confidence.

Learn to look properly and get the basic outlines correct; include the key features but simplify what you see; understand how shading (such as dot stipple or cross-hatching) can transform a sketch; get the eye level right and see how a grid helps with the composition.

Whatever you want to draw - a beautiful holiday scene, a lifelike portrait of your family or favourite pet, or even a funny cartoon to illustrate a birthday card - Mark Linley shows, in this new edition of his bestselling book, everything you need to succeed.

Our customer reviews

This book is cheap.It has 288 pages.Yeah,it looks all right,you think to yourself. It's not.All it shoes is the finished final drawing and the author talking about random rubbish: 'Give it a try!' he says. If you want a book that does not tell you how to draw,has rubbish black and white illustrations and horrible paper then this is the book for you.God,it's my favourite. *Note the sarcasm* Do the trees a favour and don't buy this more
