    I really wanted to like this book than I did I love the idea of a regular drawing practice and this book contains a great myriad of ideas and suggestions as to what to draw And there is a relentless optimism running through the book, stressing how easy and accessible this practice is for everyone Though the book has one primary author, Veronica Lawlor, the work and words of seven illustrators from the illustration collective, Studio 1482, are included Also included are suggested exercises such as drawing at a flower exhibit, sketching at a museum, drawing in your home garden or while traveling And many All thoughtful and practical suggestions.My chief complaint is the quality of the illustrations in the book Granted, they are often on location sketches, but they consistently look as if they were all done in the span of 5 10 minutes or less They are sketchy, often formless and usually without structure In many, it is even difficult to tell what the subject matter is Additionally, with seven illustrators contributing almost equally to the book, one might expect greater diversity in the work presented Instead, the drawings are all very similar expressive, yes, but also difficult to decipher with many of them looking quite amateurish A better book would include one or two illustrators who do not belong to the same group of friends and who express themselves artistically in different ways Lawlor is a contributor to Urban Sk...

    mixed media drawing exercises intermediate level Not that useful, and probably should not be called a daily lesson 6 week course unless you are in the habit of taking long vacations and have readily accessible museums, botanical gardens, and a variety of street city scenes to draw from you can find images and videos on the internet if you are housebound, but I sense that that might be frowned upon Perhaps there are many aspiring artists who have time to make these daily excursions, but the casual dabbler will probably need to space them out Note that this isn t intended for beginners looking for instruction, as there is very little of that like threads of ideas and directions to explore The exercises also call...

    There is some great art and some inspiring ideas for artistic exercises in this book I think the thing that kept me from LOVING this book is that it wasn t quite what I was expecting From the title and description and other similar books I ve seen I expected that there would be ideas for doing, well, ONE DRAWING a day for six weeks One Drawing and I kind of hoped it d be something simple enough I could bang off in an hour give or take maybe something I could work on during a spare moment while I m out and about and waiting for something Not so much Many of the exercises involve drawing than one drawing Many of the exercises involve than drawing there are a lot involving watercolour painting and a few involving collage and even scanning and manipulating stuff in photoshop And many of the projects involved expeditions or field trips around town or out of town to specific types of locations Many of the exercises also weren t really something I felt like I could read in the morning, or perhaps the evening before, and be able to say yeah I think...

    This is a great little book to get your brain flowing if you re interested in mixed media drawing illustration I think it could bring out the artist in anyone no matter your skilled level Most of the projects work with crayons, pastels, pencils, and watercolors.It asks you to use a lot of summertime plein air subjects, which could either be a hindrance or inspiration, depending on your mindset You might have to get a little creative depending on where you live, but I think that s true for any type of art.The instructions are quite...

    Two stars might be a bit unfair for this book, because it is nice, but it s not what I was looking for I was after something like Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, which you can get exercises from using the everyday objects around your house This one requires you to go out to different sorts of environments which might not necessarily be easy to get to, and also requires lots of different materials I would have had all the materials in my art college days, but these days I m not incli...

    This is not a how to book but rather a get out or stay in and draw book Assuming you already have had some basic drawing lessons, the exercises get you to tackle various subject matter with a variety of media.I wrote on my blog post I included three sketches that were inspired by exe...

    Loved this book I m always buying random art supplies to pretend to be creative, and this manual taught me how to use the tools to try It really amazed me that I had some talent, once I gave myself the moment to try Will be coming back to this again and again

    A lovely book with excellent ideas for inspiration and creativity This is one I want to follow for some time and see where it takes me.

    Not bad for some, but the majority of art examples in the book given as a demonstration of what you were so doing that day were poor cartoonist caricatures and scribblings rather than real sketches Scribble art and rough, abstract sketches are not what I was looking for Each new day comprised of a new art form pens, crayon, watercolor so you don t get a sense of full immersion in any one form Learning to work with color a struggle ...

    More pictures on my blog This is a book that grew out of the One Drawing a Day blog.There are 42 interesting daily exercises aimed at giving you ideas on what to draw, and encourages encourage exploration and experimentation Some involves drawing simple subjects around the house, some encourages you to draw outdoors, drawing the nature or people at a cafe.The instructions are minimal but give you a good starting point to generate ideas on things you can draw The exercises require you to find a subject to draw, something you can see and use a reference, and not on conjuring ideas from imagination The drawing style you can use are suggested by the exercises We re not talking about realistic representational drawings but on the loose and expressive.It s important to note that this is a mixed media book There are lessons that require different materials, like charcoal, watercolour, crayon, bamboo pen, etc If you don t already have them, it might be difficult to follow along A lesson that requires using watercolour can t really be substituted with other materials without losing the point of the lesson.This is not a book for beginners with absolutely no idea on how to draw You can be asked to draw portraits, and that requires observation skills that are taught not in the book However, it s a fine book to pair with beginner drawing books.The ending gallery features the work of artists from Studio 1482, which author Veronica Lawlor is part of Other artists includes...
