How To Draw What You See


When it was originally published in 1970, How to Draw What You See zoomed to the top of Watson-Guptill’s best-seller list—and it has remained there ever since. “I believe that you must be able to draw things as you see them—realistically,” wrote Rudy de Reyna in his introduction. Today, generations of artists have learned to draw what they see, to truly capture the world around them, using de Reyna’s methods. How to Draw What You See shows artists how to recognize the basic shape of an object—cube, cylinder, cone, or sphere—and use that shape to draw the object, no matter how much detail it contains. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Zen Of Drawing


Zen of Drawing inspires you to pick up a pen, pencil or an iPad and start drawing what you see with a 'zen' approach. Author Peter Parr has spent his career in animation successfully teaching people to draw and encouraging students to nurture their skills through observational drawing. He advocates a fresh way of looking closely at your subject and enlisting an emotional response, in order to fully appreciate the nature of what you are about to draw. You will learn that whatever you are drawing, it is essential not only to copy its outline but also to ask yourself: is it soft, smooth or rough to the touch? How heavy is it? Is it fragile or solid? Then, having grasped the fundamental characteristics, or zen, of the object, make corresponding marks on the paper - crisp textures, a dense wash, a scratchy or floating line. The chapters cover: keeping a sketchbook; tools (pen, pencil, charcoal, watercolour and iPad); perspective; line and volume; tone and texture; structure and weight; movement and rhythm; energy, balance and composition.

Draw What You See Not What You Think You See


Drawing lessons for the beginner and the frustrated artist. This drawing guide book could prove helpful if you have low confidence in drawing or if your efforts are less than satisfactory despite repeated attempts at capturing what are seen in front. You might be an absolute beginner or one who has spent a lifetime away from creative activities due to work or family commitments. You might cringe at the idea of picking up a pencil due to a severe inner critic or an affliction that can only be described as picture dyslexia. The first part of this book attempts to decode the underlying causes of this difficulty via a test and questionnaire, to be followed with special drawing exercises from the most basic. The main part of this book does not take the orthodox approach of informing on vanishing points, perspectives and plotting, but merely to help you see what is in front of you. Instead, this book starts at the beginning, to learn the language of line from A, B and C. Within you will find a series of drawing exercises geared towards combating distorted perceptions in drawing by exercising all fields of vision. This includes exercises on visual judgment, symmetrical drawing, abstract drawing, pictures within frames, negative shapes, the weight of marks, upside-down drawing and more. Further chapters explore the realms of tonality, again via the language of shading from A, B and C. Opportunities for progression can be found within the latter chapters exploring specialised shading techniques. A guide on the prescriptive areas of drawing can be found in the final chapter for guidance. This includes a section on plotting your drawing, the artist’s viewfinder, vanishing points and how to draw ellipses. Print book’s dimensions: 8.5x5.5in and 110 pages. With 15,500 words and around 90 images. The author has a PCET qualification in teaching as well as a Degree in Fine Art.

How To Draw What You See Easily And Magically Fast


HOW TO DRAW WHAT YOU SEE EASILY AND MAGICALLY FAST By Larry J. SparksI have been an artist hobbyist for about 25 years. I started out late in life learning to create artistic drawings and paintings. I did not invent this technique to learn how to draw what you see. It has been around for more than a century. I just want to share what I learned. The technique is simple, so don�t overthink it! What you are going to do is learn how to draw what you see. Your brain takes care of the rest! Most of us have 2 hands. If not, then you will need another object to observe. In my case, I learned to draw with my right (dominant) hand by observing my left or other hand! Pretty simple and only costs a little ink or pencil lead! For most people starting out (regardless of age) you can train your brain to drive your dominant hand holding the pencil (or whatever medium you choose) by looking at your other hand AND NOT LIFTING THE PENCIL FROM THE PAPER or looking at the result of your sketch until you are finished. Keep your eyes ONLY on the subject you are drawing! You say No Way? Generally, you will see progress in just a couple of weeks or so. You will want to keep practicing to get better. You may even want to draw your foot or some other object if you become bored looking at your non dominant off hand. But, you will see incredible progress and with practice from time to time you will learn a skill that should last as long as you like to draw or paint. In fact, after 25 years, I can fire up Photoshop, set up a brush and color and use my mouse (right dominant hand) to draw and paint directly on the screen without ever looking at the mouse! Wow! Beats the heck out watching stuff on the box when you can learn a useful skill instead! AND, IT IS A GREAT HOBBY!
