Comprehensive, practical and easy to follow - the ideal introduction to the art of drawing for students, amateurs and beginners of all kinds.

A comprehensive practice-based guide to the art of drawing, this book provides a chapter-by-chapter overview of key elements of drawing (such as line, shape, tone and value) before addressing the different genres (such as still life and portraiture).

Written in an accessible and encouraging manner, Drawing: A Complete Guide seeks to build the learner's confidence in artistic exploration as well as developing his or her practical abilities. Stephen Gardner opens the book by making the case that anyone can draw. He then goes on to discuss and analyse more than 500 inspirational examples, ranging from the Renaissance to contemporary art, while step-by-step demonstrations of key techniques provide further guidance for realizing successful drawings. Prompts and projects throughout the book also encourage readers to make sketching a daily routine.

Engaging, inspiring and full of expert insights from a professional artist and teacher, Drawing: A Complete Guide is an essential guide for all students and draughtspeople wishing to enhance their skills.
