A Word From the Author:

"This book is for those who wish to develop their representational drawing skills. Just as young children learn to create the alphabet letters, I believe that drawing skills can be taught and improved upon through practice. It’s true that not all children go on to develop legible handwriting. Some become careless, content with whatever flows from their hand. Others just say ’I can’t do better,’ when their early handwriting was just fine. Then there are those who would rather interpret the alphabet letters in their own manner — the abstract hand writers. Adults who have beautiful handwriting are not born with it; they develop it and maintain it with practice and discipline. So it is with drawing skills." — Claudia Nice

Author Claudia Nice is a key author for North Light, and she's also done dozens of books for us over the past twenty years or so. She has a wonderful, clear way of teaching and explaining her processes to readers, and this book on the core topic of drawing is one of her best, I think.
