Here's a pretty good book for anyone who's thinking of picking up drawing. Bert Dodson has written it in a crisp straightforward manner. The are 55 keys of drawing, introduced at a very comfortable pace. Alongside are 48 easy-to-follow lessons.

The examples are all sketches from Bert Dodson, his students and selected pieces old art masters. They are all pretty sketchy but this book isn't about techniques on realistic drawings. It's also not about specific technical rendering techniques, although some are briefly introduced.

This book is really about the approach to drawing, which aims at helping students tackle any subjects confidently.

The principles are very similar to The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence. I prefer this book as the lessons are shorter but effective, and the book can be picked up at anytime after reading for some inspiration.

This book is recommended to beginner artists.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I loved to draw as a little girl until my grade 5 art teacher held one of my "creations" up in front of my sister's class (she was very talented) and said, "can you believe they're sisters?". I was crushed and other than in art class, I never picked up a pencil again.
Fast forward 20 years where I see Bert Dodson's book "Keys to Drawing". I remembered how I used to love to draw and bought it on impulse. I started at page 1 and progressed through the book. The day my sister (the artist) walked into my house and seeing the drawing I was working on said, "nice drawing of Louis Armstrong" was one of the best moments of my life. By the way that was a drawing of Satchmo I was working on.
What I learned from Bert Dodson was that drawing is mostly about technique which anyone can learn. Although my masterpieces will never hang in a museum, they do hang in my home and my husband is very proud to have them there.
If you've always wanted to draw but thought you had no talent - buy this book. You will surprise yourself.

As a high school art teacher I have used this book for 2 years in my art classes. It introduces concepts in each chapter and gives clear instructions and goals on drawing.
This is not a how-to book where your are told how to draw faces or animals. Each chapter builds on the previous chapter. Even experienced artists will find some of the exercises fascinating. I have drawn right along with my students and have found my skills improving
too. The text is clear and the drawings accompanying the text are very descriptive.

I don't believe there is one perfect book on drawing but if I was asked to recommend one for someone either just beginning or needing to improve their abilities, "Keys To Drawing" would probably be it. Generally well written and complete; the author offers good ideas without being intolerant of other approaches (apparently a rarity in art instruction) or of doing thing slightly out of sequence. It's especially helpful for someone who is not in an academic setting. My next suggestion would be to begin to put together a small library over time of the very best books on drawing including Nicolaides' "The Natural Way to Draw"; some of Hale's anatomy works; Guptill's "Pen and Ink..."; etc. Drawing well demands a sincere desire to learn, some knowledge and a certain amount of real practice; this book will help on your journey - from someone who's "been there".

I first heard of this book while taking a sketchbook drawing course, and it has been a constant reference source for all of my drawing and painting efforts. The medium is drawing, but the instructions are universal -- seeing vs knowing, organizing a piece, composition, balance, unity, variety, movement, tension - there is nothing here that I can't use in other media. Must have for anyone developing their compositional eye.

Keys to Drawing is an excellent teaching or learning tool for the beginning artist or one hoping to improve upon his/her ability. The instructions are easy to understand and the illustrations are clear enough that even a beginner can immitate them. The author also includes drawings from Monet, Matisse, Rembrandt, and other well-known artists. He starts off very easy with drawing a pair of feet and continues with drawing various things with perspective and depth. The drawings are all in black and white, which makes it somewhat easier to render than color, but makes it hard to see certain things. I highly recommend it for the beginning or avid artist. Happy drawing!!

I never drew before but always wanted to learn. The exercises you need to do are the best part of this book, for me. I have learned a lot from them and continue to learn. I took a beginners course in my town at the same time and I found what I learned in this book to be very valuable. Instructions are clear and concise.

I'm drawing for fun and never had any formal training on any art subjects. This books gives you great guidelines on drawing. It contains numerous exercises that help develop your personal style. Going through the exercises, I could see tremendous improvements in a relatively short time

A good book but he borrows heavily from Betty Edwards and nowhere gives credit.
