Learn to Draw (Almost) Anything in 6 Easy Steps

Learn to Draw (Almost) Anything is a step-by-step tutorial drawing guide aimed at absolute beginners. Due out 26th May 2020 from Quarto on on their Race Point imprint, is 128 pages and will be available in paperback format.

This is an ultra simple, quick study, beginner's guide to drawing lots (and lots!) of different simple everyday items. The introduction is easy and very basic and covers how to use the book and a very little on line drawing. The 6-frame tutorials are split into thematic sections: animals, birds, fish, architecture, transportation, garden, outdoors, and people.

The format of these tutorials will be familiar to most readers. They start with simple shapes or geometric line drawings, add simple shapes and refine the outline to wind up with a recognizable finished drawing. Some of the drawings were whimsical, some were very stylized.Each tutorial page has a 'now you have a go' blank facing page for practice.

Great selection for a gift for a young artist, perhaps with some added sketch pads and pencils. This would also make a superlative classroom or library book.I would also recommend this book to babysitters, grandparents, parents, and basically anyone who spends a fair bit of time with small kids in order to up their 'draw with me' game.

Four stars. Fun collection.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
