This unusual book serves several different purposes, starting with its guaranteed appeal to both professionals and amateurs who like to pick up a pencil and draw.
Art students seeking a change of pace are sure to respond to Sam Piyasena and Beverly Philp's very informal approach, seeing the lessons as fun-to-do confidence-builders that emphasize the value of creative freedom. Designed to develop and improve hand-eye coordination, the exercises can be performed by those at every level of training and ability.
Individual exercises focus on a different approach to drawing precisely what the eye sees — rapid sketches of moving objects, detailed observation of tones and shadow, exercises that teach rules of perspective, and much more.
Just Draw It! is a powerfully effective art course that never feels like a set of tedious drills.
The lessons can be completed using various media, including pencil, ink, colored pencils, markers, or charcoal.
Authors — Sam Piyasena and Beverly Philp.
