Book Review: Basic Drawing: How to Draw What You See

Basic Drawing: How to Draw What You See - 01


Basic Drawing by Charles Williams is an introductory book to drawing. It's about observational drawing with instructions and exercises.

The book's written with a more academic approach and can be quite draggy. That's exactly the same complaint I have with the author's other book called Basic Watercolour: How to Paint What You See.

Personally I would have preferred a much hands on approach rather than one with lengthy text explanation. There are some good exercises but none too inspiring looking though.

If you want a better book on sketching or observational drawing, check out Keys to Drawing.

Basic Drawing: How to Draw What You See is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
