Drawing & Seeing

Clara Drummond
Authors:
Clara Drummond

'This is a book about keeping your own sketchbook, a drawn diary of your daily life and what strikes you. The pages are for you to fill, make a mess, take risks, try things out, to be fearless and to be curious, but most of all to look and to respond to what you see.'No one, Clara believes, can tell you how to draw. Instead you can learn by practising and discarding preconceived ideas. Clara uses artists who inspire her, to demonstrate how everyone's approach is unique and features images of her favourite drawings and sketchbooks, to spark your creativity.Chapters focus on the different media of Graphite, Charcoal, Coloured Crayons, Ink and Mixed Media and offer tips such as where to start on the page and how to best use your materials.With space for 30 days of drawing, to be done in whichever order you'd like, Drawing & Seeing will allow you to keep your own sketchbook, a drawn diary of your daily life - and to see how not only your drawing transforms, but also the way you see your surroundings.
