Gorgeously illustrated and practical, this guide to the art of drawing employs a close analysis of great works to reveal techniques and lessons that will help practitioners at every level. The art of drawing is an essential skill for any artist.

Using 100 great works on paper as its lessons, each spread features a reproduction of one work, and offers invaluable lessons about the approaches and techniques the artist used. Organized into chapters on nudes, figures, landscapes, still life, heads, fantasy, and abstraction, the book breaks down the featured works in different ways. For instance it explores how differences in tone and shadow bring life to a standing figure and how many different weights of line can be achieved with one crayon.

Guy Nobel is an artist and teacher whose work has been exhibited all over the world and is held in collections in the USA, Germany, Italy, France and the UK.

He trained at the Bram Shaw School of Art in London and has taught painting and drawing at Central Saint Martins art school in London since 2006.
