In this book, both budding and experienced artists will find clear, comprehensive instructions to help them improve their craft. The author describes in detail the type of materials to acquire before starting, and ideas to consider in composition, choice of medium, and more. The exercises range from basic to advanced, helping artists to progress from fundamental skills to emulating the work of masters. 

All it takes to draw effectively is the desire to do it, a little persistence, the ability to observe and a willingness to carefully correct any mistakes. Many of the exercises in this book incorporate time-honored methods practiced by art students and professional artists. If they are followed diligently, they will bring about a marked improvement in drawing skills.

Opportunities for improvement are offered across a wide spectrum of subjects--still life, plants, landscapes, animals, figure drawing and portraiture--and supported by demonstrations of a broad ran of skills and techniques, including perspective and composition.
