Essential Techniques of Landscape Drawing: Master the Concepts and Methods for Observing and Rendering Nature Tapa dura – 7 agosto 2018
Mejora tu compra
Following in the footsteps of author, artist, and art instructor Suzanne Brooker's previous title The Elements of Landscape Oil Painting, this book pairs the most universally-pursued topic for artists (drawing) with the popular subject matter of the natural landscape. Brooker breaks down landscapes into their various elements--including the earth, water, air, and trees--to convey how the fundamentals of drawing are applied to capture each aspect. Using the graphite pencil as her baseline instrument, Brooker provides you with step-by-step lessons that help you improve your rendering skills and re-create the beauty of the world outdoors. Examples from art history and contemporary masters supplement these lessons. The end result is a drawing instruction book that provides artists with everything they need to render landscapes no matter their skill level.

Landscape has been the dominant subject in my own work for most of my student/professional life and now that I'm obliged to teach others, I've had to consider different ways of helping students gain and develop an approach to this very popular area of artistic endeavour; most people want to launch straight into painting the subject, working with colour and trying to negotiate details, but it's a much more complicated process than many realise.
Drawing is a fundamental approach to anything, including landscape; it is an intense observational exercise that reveals how things are structured and becomes a fascinating and meditative discipline in itself – that is what this book will help the student explore and nurture for themselves.
It offers very useful instruction and advice, backed up by example drawings by the author and a range of other artists; there's very basic information in the early chapters which is common to all drawing books, but both the text and the examples as one progresses through the book become more specific; there are some panels showing different stages in a drawing, but they are not the step-by-step demonstrations many students expect (and tend to copy) but are simply examples of how to approach a subject in one's own work.
While some of the subject matter is characteristically American landscape, the techniques and approaches are all easily applicable to the landscape of any country.
Later chapters do deal with colour using graphic materials like pastel or coloured pencils.
A worthwhile book for any aspiring landscape artist to have for both instruction and reference; do use the “Look inside” option at the top of the page for an idea of the contents.
Anyone who is seriously interested in landscape drawing and painting will find this a tremendously useful book. The author assumes the reader is willing to study, observe and practice but has packed the book with photos, illustrations and examples from many different sources that help and inspire.
Whether you are a practiced painter of landscape, a teacher or an intermediate landscapist who has outgrown beginners books I believe this book has a lot to offer you. (Brooker's observations on the problems encountered when using photographic sources for your work and on how to fix them will be worth the cost of the book to many.)
Ignore the misleading title of this book, if you are interested in landscapes and how to depict them realistically this is a great resource.
