Animal Sketching / Alexander Calder (Paperback)
Our Price: $4.69
Alexander Calder, the renowned sculptor and inventor of mobiles, here brings his characteristic simplicity of line and spirit of movement to the art of animal sketching. The purpose of the book is to help the student to draw animals as he or she sees them. Noting and practicing the way Calder captures the emotions and attitudes of animals in a few quick lines, the student can quickly obtain a lasting groundwork in animal sketching that will before long become second nature.
Because of the simplicity of Calder's approach to sketching, this book can easily be used by even the youngest of students. There are no difficult techniques to master here, no roundabout methods of construction, but just an insistence on drawing things as the student sees them, with undogmatic and delightful assistance from an undisputed master of the simple expressive line. It is unlikely that there is any more pleasant way to study way to study such a fundamental branch of pictorial art.
Unabridged and unaltered republication of the 1929 edition, with 62 pages and 141 drawings.
