We artists do love to buy books. I have a special weakness for art instruction books. I have more art instruction books than I care to think about, and certainly more than I need. Sad but true. And in a few cases, they were worse than useless, either because the information in them was just plain wrong, or because they directed me down unproductive paths and wasted my time with fripperies instead of concentrating on drawing fundamentals. The books on this list are outrageously useful, in my opinion.
Great list, Paul. Thanks for doing this, and hopefully saving us all some time and money. I know that you have previously mentioned it somewhere on your website — or maybe in the recent webinar??
Both of those authors cite Nicolaides as the teacher who first introduced contour drawing. This book was also the first where I encountered the concept of gesture drawing.
I worked with the Nicolaides book for a long time when I was just getting started and it was really helpful. His directions for each exercise that he introduces are great and he has schedules in the book that tell you which exercises to practice and for how long. He has lots of good insights about the drawing process as well. This book was really important for me as a beginner, and continues to be one that I return to frequently. I remember posting this quote from the book near my drawing area: All the books you advised are outstanding, esp.
Drawing on the Right Side, so long as one takes the time to actually perform the exercises. I was absolutely amazed at my progress with that book. Astonishing results! Hello Paul, Good idea this post. About figure drawing, there is this great advanced and detailed book: Richard G. Thanks for all your work. Thanks to you I have both the Speed and the Dow but have failed you by not working continuously through them. Must improve! I have found Bridgemans Complete guide to Drawing from Life useful as a source to copy from and to understand anatomy better.
Thought provoking and timely as a reminder that I must return to the Speed and Dow this winter. Thanks Paul x. Thank you for the great explanations of what to expect from each book and for keeping the list narrow. This is an excellent resource. Great post as always.
I can only suggest one book for the list. Its a great book for artistic motivation. Oh yes Paul, I have all of them and some. On my kindle I have all 3 books by Juliette Aristides. They are all very valuable in their own way.
I use all of these books at different times. We all have our unique way of learning and to find what is right for us we have to investigate. However, the bottom line is practice…. Love being able to download free books that are over years old. Dorian just had a webinar on his new course on Mastering light and Form. Here is the link for replay: I am also very familiar with James Gurney, thank you for the link I had missed that one.
Thank you for being such an inspiration Paul. Hi there, I am fairly new to your site and am learning and enjoying it tremendously. Your post reminded me how it is time to go through my art books and cull, trade, sell most of them! What you said is all too true. Some of the books were given to me or I bought in the beginning years. I have all four of the books you listed and have dipped into them over and over again.
It has the properties you mentioned in your post. All your posts are so inspiring. This exercise gives immediadte result and is so meditative. Thanks so much for publishing these links, Paul!. I have Googled the Bargue plates and have found some few posted here and there to work from until such time I can afford to buy the actual book.
I, too, have become very selective in choosing whether or not to buy art books. To me, too many of them seem to rehash information I already have in other books. I have had loads of fun with some of the exercises in that book and have recommended both to people as well.
These are all worthwhile as well. The two books that taught me how to see and how to develop a logical approach to drawing when the goal is accuracy and relative speed are:. Drawing in the Digital Age: Angle-based methodology based on simple math. Basic Drawing: New ways to see and draw by Raphael Ellender. He presents very clearly and precisely his approach to drawing from where you look when drawing a straight line, to perspective and gestural lines in life drawing.

A real gem! Hi Paul, what a terrific blog post! Speed, Loomis- yes! I would like to add here how much I like the Famous Artists 3-Volume set that you often find on Ebay. Always love posts about books, and this one features two of my favorite ones. Thank you for sharing! Great opportunity to re-read and refresh our knowledge.
While Dow is a great resource, to me it is hampered by low quality scans but even more by the fact that is a rather complicated text. As a pedagogic tool, it really would benefit from being broken down into smaller pieces and having excercises set out more clearly.
Loomis books may have their faults, but since I have nothing to compare to and not having the master drawers expert eyes and hindsight knowledge, I really like the Titan reprints. They make me want to pick up the pen. I bought a copy of the Harold Speed book, but it was such bad print quality that I had to throw it away. I went back to the pdf I already had, and printed it.

Quite a wordy fellow by the way, but at an intermediate level I think it could be useful to me. The Charles Bargue stuff — it is like a bunch of dry oatmeals that I have to eat … it is probably healthy and nutritious, but by Jove… it will kill me.
And as Paul has hinted at earlier in his postings, the reproduction of a plate is not without its issues. What I really need I think, is a mix of Dow and Loomis, for me today. The big challenge is to start out on the journey without falling prey to pessimism because it seems such a long haul to even being halfways good. I own the Bargue book, and totally agree. The should have printed the plates to the correct size, otherwise what is the point.
Just my opinion.. It contains the very basic concept we tend to forget when starting portait and figure drawing. Great post as always, Paul. Solomon is another precious classic. The Bargue book has been on my to-order list for a while now. You show it at any school and be offered admission. Drawing realistic textures in pencil by jd hillberry here is where you learn to take value and tone to the next level.
He teaches you what tools to use to get various effects. I have slowly been getting digital versions of the books I love. I cant find all of them but I did manage to find quite a few allowing me to free up some space.
Its not a perfect system for sure. There are several books that are just better and easier to read in hardback.
The Loomis books are a good example. You can get the pdf for free but the formatting is difficult to follow. The hardbacks flow so much better. I do think beginners should opt for digital books if they can. Just because the collection tends to grow huge as you look for more information.
I have always wanted to be able to draw decently. I am obviously not understanding something. If anyone can explain it to me so I can at least get started…. Thank you for this list. I will look into these books. I love drawing and this year established a weekly drawing group.
To support the 15 group members I have set up a small library of books for loan. From those books I strongly recommend the following on the basis that they contain well written text, pose numerous challenging exercises, reference the masters of drawing, and include supporting drawing images throughout.
The creative process Thanks Tim, that Kaupelis book look very interesting. Hi, for an absolute beginner, which one shall i start witg, or should i do all three at the same time, please reply soon. Many thanks for yet another insightful, informative post. This is fantastic, thank you for the recommendations. I just ordered them and cannot wait for their arrival.
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain was given to me by my mom when I was much younger…. Then connect the dots with curved, zigzag or straight lines to create a pattern. These exercises reveal hidden patterns in negative space, show you how choices can make a difference and will help you engage in randomness to take your work a few steps further. If you have been drawing for some time and are feeling stuck or uninspired by your marks, it may be time to reinvent in order to discover something new.
Years ago I had developed a great exercise that involved rendering minute and exact details using graphite pencils on a fine surfaced drawing paper Strathmore Drawing paper. I was bored, and so I set out to change my habit by using tools and paper that were the exact opposite—ink in a faulty dip pen on hot press paper, which is slightly spongy.
I also used my non-dominant hand and no photo reference. Choose one theme or one kind of object, and only draw that thing during the course of a day. You can vary your approach to this by choosing an animate or inanimate object, a color, a size of something, things that are scary or make you laugh, or things that start with a specific letter.
You can also use synonyms, such as things that move you emotionally versus things that literally move you, like modes of transportation. The more thoughtful you can be, the more you exercise your concept-building abilities as well as you hand skills. Take 25 blank index cards and cut them into thirds. On the first stack, print an adjective on each card, on the next stack, print a noun, and on the third stack print a verb on each card.
Then draw it! It might not turn into fine art but it will help cultivate basic skills and build your confidence in the craft. Emily J. Potts has been a writer and editor in the design industry for more than 20 years.
