Ian Simpson's clear systematic approach to all aspects of drawing provides a comprehensive drawing course, ideal for both beginners and for those with considerable experience who want to re-examine the fundamentals.

Lavishly illustrated and with many suggestions for practical work, this book also offers teachers at all levels a ready-made instruction program which progresses from basic drawing problems to the development of personal style. It has rightly become a classic in the field and required reading on many courses. The artwork has been completely re-originated for this printing.
