A well-known artist, author, and teacher, Carlson offers clear, uncomplicated methods of drawing for aspiring artists at every level. Chock-full of step-by-step illustrations, this compendium expertly covers the fundamentals of drawing figures, portraits, still-lifes, and landscapes for a wide variety of mediums. An all-in-one guide for art students, it includes:
  • Simplified Ink, Pen and Brush Drawing opens the door to a number of drawing techniques, including spattering, stippling, cross-hatching, accented strokes, and the use of chalk and crayon.
  • Simplified Drawing teaches artists the ABCs of free-hand drawing and features the basic principles of an object's construction using the easy "block method."
  • The Simplified Essentials of Charcoal Drawing discusses charcoal materials and how to use them, and includes various techniques of charcoal drawing with application to cast, life, and outdoor sketching.

... FOREWORD ...

Learning to draw free hand can be much simplified by understanding the simple basic principles of the construction of the object and learning to see it that way. Just as we learn to draw the A, B, C’s and later to put them in an order that carries an idea or thought — we learn to use lines to make shapes and forms that convey our impression of what we see or want to say in drawing. Lines and shapes are flat, but as we add the third dimension we have depth and form. The angular form which has definite sides, top and bottom is the simple basic form we use. The surfaces of these blocks are called planes. These planes catch light and shade which lead to sound, constructive drawing and painting.

First let’s learn to draw a block accurately and learn to draw it in every position possible. Next apply this block to some object — cut corners and add planes but don’t lose the basic form. Details and textures follow but are less important than the big simple forms and planes that are so easy to shade or paint later on. The following pages show the use of this block method applied to a variety of subject matter plus some rules, laws and mechanics of picture building.

It is the author’s firm conviction that by this simple method anyone can learn to draw anything well and with ease.
