The Language of Drawing: From an Artist's Viewpoint (Softcover)

The Language of Drawing: From an Artist's Viewpoint (Softcover)
By Sherrie McGraw
Some have called The Language of Drawing: From An Artist's Viewpoint  the definitive instructional book on drawing. McGraw de-mystifies this ancient art and gives license to artist and layman alike to hone their visual skills with her logical approach. McGraw says it this way, "We all know this language; we were born with it. A child makes linear symbols for the world without hesitation, and that is why their scrawls have such universal appeal. The artist then develops a deeper understanding of this natural language." This book explains what all good draughtsmen have known since the first line was etched on a cave wall thousands of years ago. Rich with illustrations of McGraw's drawings, it also includes some of her influences in a special chapter filled with some of the greatest drawings of all time. For beginners and accomplished artists alike, this book allows you to fall in love with drawing again.
