'Collins Artist's Guide to Drawing' helps you to develop those skills that are essential to every artist - the ability to observe with a critical eye, then set down your observations on paper. Some artists confine their drawing activities to making on-the-spot observations in a sketchbook, while others devote many hours to careful studies in pencil, pastel or pen and ink. Whatever route you follow, this book will supply the inspiration and technical know-how.
Contents include choosing, caring for and using the many and varied types of drawing materials - pencils, charcoal, pastels, pen and ink, paper and accessories. There is also advice on drawing and observation, figure drawing, sketching outdoors, composition and drawing aids.
