A Word from the Author

“More than just teaching you how to draw any one particular thing, the purpose of this book is to teach you how to draw anything you see. Anything. That requires a systematic, methodical approach to lay a
solid foundation with each concept building on the previous. If you take the time to learn and practice the concepts in this book diligently, you’ll find yourself able to draw pretty much anything you see around you, no matter how complicated, because you will know how to strip a composition down to its basics and then build on that.” –Sarah Parks

About the Author

As an artist, Sarah has always aimed to blend Impressionism with Classical Realism, especially when drawing and painting the human form, which is her favorite subject. Sarah feels she was born to be an artist, growing up in an artistic family where watercolor, ceramics and oil painting all cropped up in various branches. Earning her degrees of Art History and Studio Art from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, was but an introduction to the art world. As she continued to delve into painting, Sarah has observed how important solid drawing skills are to creating an excellent painting.
