Keys to Drawing by Bert Dodson
Keys to Drawing is an excellent beginner as well as intermediate resource for learning to draw.
An excellent book of exercises, all pertinent and simple, informative and useful, to teach you to SEE the way an artist sees. Dodson emphasizes loosening up, setting aside the overly critical attitude that holds most people back and pushes creativity while helping you master skills in composition, proportion, shading, negative shapes, texture, depth, etc.
As one reader put it, “you master skills rather than the perfection of the end result. Oddly enough, the end result of all these lessons, are more perfect drawings!”
