Drawing is all about learning to really see the world around you and to translate it on to paper. In this book, author Vivienne Coleman shows how you can use just a few simple strokes, shapes and shades to draw almost any subject you like, from a piece of fruit to a detailed landscape. Each exercise is broken down into easy steps so that, even if you are new to drawing, you will be amazed at the results you can achieve. As you gain in confidence you can tackle still life objects around the home, then larger outdoor objects and landscapes, and finally living subjects: animals and people. From your first marks on paper to your most ambitious portrait, you will find your journey enjoyable and, above all, rewarding.
