Concise, direct and practical, The "How-To" of Sketching is an invaluable guide to developing or improving your ability to sketch expressive and lively line drawings. The biggest hurdle for many beginning and improving artists is knowing where to begin and what to do on a regular basis to keep developing. Many books on drawing technique stress academic rote exercises, but don't talk much about the process of drawing itself. In his unique conversational style, Hollerbach sets the artist on the path to sharpening basic skills with specfic recommendations on which subjects to focus. He highlights practical tips with which to tackle recurring problems, such as judging proportions, establishing angles, distribution of weight, folds in clothing, hair, eyeglasses, and much more. The book is copiously illustrated with dozens of original sketches by the author, each demonstrating a particular concept or technique. This is the book you will want to carry with you all the time, along with your own sketchbook.
