How to Draw from your Imagination by Scott Robertson with Thomas Bertling
But times change and I now wanted my sea wave paintings in a more 3 dimensional reality and came across Scott Robertson's youtube videos and ordered his book 'How to draw- drawing and sketching objects and environments from your imagination'. Basically it's everything you'll ever need to know about how to draw things in perspective.
His method of instruction is step by step and well illustrated. Chapter headings include:
Drawing materials and skills
Perspective drawing techniques
Ellipses and rotations
Working with volume
Drawing wheeled vehicles
Sketching styles and mediums
He also gives detailed instructions on the methods and materials he uses in online videos (which connect directly from the book on your smartphone or tablet or if you haven't got one of those there's a link address at the end of the book). Sometimes though you really need a real life tutor which I do as I'm stuck on one of the chapters.
Overall though I look forward to practising the technical side of drawing again after so many years and that's something.
The book was published in late 2013 so it's relatively new but I'm sure will become a technical drawing classic. From Design Studio Press. 208 pages.
