Sketching Is Easy Author:Arthur Zaidenberg By the Author of "Anyone Can Paint" and "Drawing The Human Figure." Hundreds of illustrations! — From the Forward: — "All artists sketch, for it is the sketch that represents the first step which ultimately leads to the most elaborate finished creation. Time is a pressing element in the sketch. Your sitters usually pause only momentarily for you; ... more »objects must be noted as you pass; and scenes change even as you gather your pencil impressions of them. It is important to acquire a method of approaching the problem of dealing with the elements of time when you decide to take sketching.
The present book will follow a method as free-handed and informal as the practice medium it discusses. It is not a lesson book in the pedantic sense of the word, or a beginner's book in the elements of drawing. It presupposes the user's familiarity with certain fundamentals of drawing and may be considered a handbook - for some, a refresher course - in principles of drawing which cannot be reiterated and re-studied too frequently.
