From sketch to finished drawing in just 15 minutes!
by Erin McManness
This book appears to be part of a series as I recently reviewed a similar title on watercolors. This book on drawing drew (sorry for the pun) me in. It made drawing seems possible and not just something for inherently talented artists.
I very much like that the first sentence of this book notes that drawing should be fun. There is then helpful information on techniques for both drawing and creating letters. Following are many projects that budding artists can try. These are organized by categories as, for example, Leaves & Flowers or Everyday Life. I can’t wait to try my hand at some of these, especially as I am interested in exploring something new and would like to be more proficient than my current doodling.
Note that this title also includes a number of prompts. It gently encourages drawing as a potential act of reflection and dreaming. There is also workbook space throughout.
This book has left me wanting to get my pencils out. I hope that will be the feeling that others have when they pick up this title.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto-Walter Foster Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
