Description
Finally, a book that shows you, step-by-step, how to get the artistic results you want. Other art instructional books show you the beautiful final product (and if you're lucky, a couple of interim steps) but leave out how to get from point A to point B. And few of them give you any background about HOW and WHY it all works together to get you to your final goal. Illustrating Nature is being used by homeschoolers to give children the skills to illustrate their journals and assignments (and entertain themselves!). College classes are using it as a textbook to learn scientific illustration. And it's being used by ordinary people to learn how to draw exactly what they see.Have you ever seen a book that shows you how to draw moving objects with confidence and skill? Illustrating Nature, Right-brain Art in a Left-brain World does.This book is designed to make art logical, simple, doable and fun. Improving one's artistic prowess can be as simple as picking and choosing from a lavish array of simple tricks to improve skills, or as involved as going through the book step by step to arrive at a point where you can draw what you see with confidence and pride. If art instructional books that promised a lot but left you befuddled have put you off before, try this one for a refreshing change.
