Author: Mark Kistler
Publisher: Da Capo
Release Date: Apr 2011
Drawing is a skill, not a talent - anyone can draw! In 30 lessons of 20-minutes each day, you can learn to create
sophisticated three dimensional drawings - from landscapes to the human figure.
Drawing is a skill, not a talent--if you've got a pencil, Mark Kistler will show you how. "You Can Draw in 30 Days" provides a thorough course in basic drawing, using incredibly quick and simple instructions. In just twenty minutes a day, learn the secrets of sophisticated three-dimensional renderings--starting with apples and oranges and progressing to landscapes and human figures. Each day focuses on one skill, building toward more advanced technique.
Ideal for students, professionals, or anyone who always wanted to learn but never did, "You Can Draw in 30 Days" makes it easy to expertly draw everything from the world around you to the vivid pictures from your imagination.
While you won’t become a master sketcher from completing the activities in this book, you will certainly gain the foundation skills to build upon to becoming a good artist. The best aspect of this book is that the lessons are basic and achievable, with simple daily activities to have a go at. Iu’ve seen some how to draw books that don’t really cover the basic details for a beginner, making it impossible to achieve the outcomes at the end of the lesson. This book is not like that. If you go through each step, you quickly master each technique.
