For beginning artists, this book of simple lessons adds easy structure to build your practice. We may understand that learning new skills takes time, but Kateri Ewing takes the time to set readers up for success with coaching about how + when to fit drawing into daily life consistently, even in 10-minute increments. Ewing showcases her drawing skills beautifully, patiently guiding new artists into different techniques, + using illustrations at the end of each lesson to showcase the results of her slow skill-building. Learn to shade, add dimension, simplify shapes and more.
The pacing of the book matches its tone perfectly. If you’re looking for the type of instruction that feels grounded + natural, not rushed, look no further than Drawing is for Everyone.
