HOW TO DRAW WHAT YOU SEE
When it was originally published in 1970, How to Draw What You See zoomed to the top of Watson-Guptill’s best-seller list—and it has remained there ever since. “I believe that you must be able to draw things as you see them—realistically,” wrote Rudy de Reyna in his introduction. Today, generations of artists have learned to draw what they see, to truly capture the world around them, using de Reyna’s methods. How to Draw What You See.
Emphasizing fundamentals, he urges readers to identify the basic shape of an object-cube, cylinder, cone, or sphere-and to use that shape to draw the object, no matter how much detail it contains. This compact 35th anniversary edition touches on still life, landscapes, and figure drawing in pencil, charcoal, watercolor wash, acrylic, and ink. De Reyna's dedication and enthusiasm are evident on every page.
