Summary

More a "how-to-see-it" than a "how-to-do-it" book, this edition explores the disguises and characteristics of shapes and forms in nature, and it examines the visual elements and the relational, moving, and emotive forces that constitute the language of drawing.Clear and objective, this book offers an intensive examination of vital drawing processes and concepts, an in-depth analysis of exceptional drawings by old and contemporary artists, and suggested exercises to enhance the readers'grasp of important measurable and dynamic phenomena.For the art student, the art teacher, the interested amateur, and the practicing artist.
