A lovely little book . . . As much of a holiday companion or stocking stuffer as it is an office library staple. It doubles as a beginner's guide as well as a refining tool for more expert draughtspersons, showing hundreds of examples of genuine sketches. . . . This is a very handy guide that aims to increase the reader/user's 'personal satisfaction'. Well worth the money. --Austin Williams"


Freehand drawing is the artist's most useful tool for notation, design exploration and graphic communication. This book aims at building skill and confidence through mastery of the fundamentals and practice in carefully designed exercises.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great little book 22. November 2009
Von Peter Shahrokh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book gets down to the essence of live, line drawing. The author is extremely helpful in getting the reader past his fears by giving encouraging words and giving great examples. One can easily progress with his advice, and change one's attitude from being hesitant to celebratory. A great place to start if you want to get past initial personally-imposed restrictions. This book, above all things, teaches courage--courage to draw and courage to express.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SImple, elegant 9. Juni 2009
Von DW - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The single most useful drawing guide I've seen, by an artist whose style is swift and lively, as it should be. Uncluttered pages abound with terse commentary and there is not a superfluous line, either in sketch or prose. Especially useful for those who love to use pen and ink.

3.0 von 5 Sternen not much in here 17. Januar 2010
Von C. Keil - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"An Introduction" is an appropriate subtitle. Nice examples, layout and descriptions of fundamental sketching techniques for architects/landscape architects. However, this is more like a pamphlet than a book. You can devour it in an hour. It is useful to think about the concepts and ideas while sketching but I really do not see myself turning back to this book for technique or drawing solutions down the road.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Deceptively simple how-to book 30. August 2012
Von Dan Bergevin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is one of the best how-to books out there for artists of any and all stripes. It teaches how to pay attention to things and draw recognizable renderings of the things around you. Once you start to really see things, drawing them becomes easy - the trick is to pay close attention to details you often take for granted or miss entirely.

After a couple days of work I was able to draw houses, trees, furniture, jewelry, appliances, and a myriad of other things before I was done with chapter one. Nothing I rendered looked fantastic but I could show my drawings to anyone and they could immediately tell what they were. But the real benefit wasn't the end results, but the process of observation. I'd say what I learned most from this book is that 80-90% of any "field drawing" (or drawing what you see, on the fly) is observation and the other 10-20% is putting ink on paper.

The only real problem I have with this book is its implicit structure, and I had to read the whole book before I started using it just so I could record the lessons in the order they were presented. This was important to me because I planned to do every exercise, in order, as the author intended.

Here are the lessons in the book, in the order they are presented in:

Contour drawing
Negative space
Proportion and scale
Stroke consistency
Construction, tone, and detail exercise
Grid exercises 1 and 2
Frame exercises 1 and 2
Shape exercises 1 and 2
Detail and Pattern

The order makes sense, the lessons are valuable, and the exercises are challenging and fruitful. You have to dig a little to see just how much material is covered in this tiny little book (the table of contents is missing all of the above), but it is well worth the effort. And for the cost of this book, a notebook, and a box of ballpoint pens, you will get the best sketching education ever.

I also have Visual Notes for Architects and Designers, which is not a how-to book like this one but is an expansion on the material presented here. I highly recommend getting both, starting with this one, and doing ALL the exercises. Good luck!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical hands-on guide 10. August 2011
Von Richard del Monte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As an architect I have been keeping a sketchbook for over 30 years, but I felt my techniques had become a little stale and I set out to find a book that would push me to try new techniques. This book perfectly fit the bill. It has specific hands-on exercises that lead you step by step into the techniques he is trying to develop. The exercises are well developed and the techniques he teaches can be accomplished by almost anyone with a little practice.

This book is not about ten different ways to sketch with pencil, pen, watercolor, etc. The focus is completely on how to sketch effectively with a pen on paper, and this focus gives the book a strong point of view and makes it an effective teaching tool.
