Filled with colorful illustrations and step-by-step explanations, How to Draw an Object is a foolproof introduction to the art of sketching. Equal parts inspiration and tutorial, the delightful drawings are sure to have even the shyest artists reaching for a sketchbook.
The book begins with simple explanations of drawing fundamentals—how to use perspective and draw basic shapes like cubes, cylinders, and cones. From there newly minted sketch artists will learn how to transform those simple components into realistic drawings. A cylinder becomes a many layered wedding cake festooned with frosting while a cone is transformed into a martini, a butterfly net, or a sea shell. Soon readers will see that even the most complicated drawing is really only a collection of basic shapes.
The book also includes a range of more specific tips and tricks, such as how to mimic the drape of fabric when drawing clothes or add texture. How to Draw an Object will give anyone who’s ever wanted to learn to draw the confidence to pick up a pencil and begin!
