Buildings are familiar to all of us; we spend all of our time in and around them but seldom pay them the attention they deserve, until we want to draw them. Size, shape and style vary from location to location and country to country, providing an almost limitless source of varying subject matter. In this book, Ian Sidaway presents a series of ten progressive demonstrations in order to master the basics of drawing buildings.
After learning about the tools and materials needed, the basic techniques are explored, including style and visual vocabulary, line quality, tone, colour, mixing media, measuring and assessing scale and proportion. The ten demonstrations feature a variety of building - from a simple church to a Mediterranean town house, a city skyline to a beautiful, ornate window - drawn in a range of media.
As a beginner, who may have previously been daunted by the thought of drawing building, you will be delighted at the results that you achieve by following this drawing course.
