Before you know it, you've created realistic rocks trees etc. My drawing has greatly improved faster than I expected.
Though I have been engaged in drawing with graphite, pen and ink, charcoal and pastels, I have no formal training in these. I simply enjoy capturing scenes, objects, flowers, or animals in this way. My father was a talented artist even though he was only known by the family. I found this small book to be the most informative and helpful ''. Since I also enjoy painting, I believe that I will check out your other informative books. Thank you so much!
   Epic book! Check out the other book by Mark and Mary!
This book teaches everything about how to draw nature, from what tools you need to know what you are drawing and how to make it better. What I like the most about this book is that it explains every main tool that can be used regardless of what type of drawing or sketch. In summary, this book is very helpful and will fit any type of person, from drawing begginers to sketching experts, especially for those who love to draw like me. Note also the other book by Mark and Mary if you liked this book!

The book is very detailed in the pictures and information, my granddaughter is 11 and has been drawing since the age of 5, so she was very excited to get this book to lead her into new adventures.

I never drawn before and it was easy and I impressed myself. During a great distraction, this is a pandemic. Enjoy the ride!

I was surprised to find out in what great condition this book was. Will buy again from them and recommend them easily.
   Very disappointing
Paid for a new book, came bent and wrinkled all. It was received for a gift so that it was very disappointing. Could have gone to the local yard sale and received it for 10 cents looking like this...
