The Fundamentals of Drawing offers an academic-inspired, foundational exploration of the drawing basics, which ultimately serves as the gateway to Walter Foster's newest core drawing-book series: The Academy of Art. Structured like a class curriculum, The Fundamentals of Drawing covers the basic concepts any beginning artist needs to learn this art form, including space and depth, proportion, composition, perspective, and more. To start the exploration, art instructor Jim Dowdalls demonstrates how to use the different types of drawing tools, including how to hold a pencil, how to use supports, and how to make a variety of marks and strokes. Artists will discover helpful information for understanding value and learning to create a value scale, as well as how to build value in their drawings using various techniques. Throughout this educational book, a myriad of step-by-step exercises and drawing projects encourage artists to put their newfound knowledge to use and practice the concepts and techniques demonstrated. With the skills and techniques they acquire in this comprehensive drawing course, beginning artists will be ready to take their artwork to the next level. Full of beautiful artwork that will inspire readers to explore drawing further, The Fundamentals of Drawing is the perfect place to start a mastery of fine art.
