Drawing is something I have always previously
been scared of.
I can't picture things in my head so I think this
hinders me slightly.
However I have decided to combat my fear
and to start learning.
It's amazing coming back to drawing as an adult.

I thought this book would be a fantastic place to start.
It takes you through each step so that you can
see how to easily break things down and replicate it. 

Carole takes you through such small and easy
steps that you don't realise how quickly you
are changing the way you draw and making it
so much easier.


Throughout the book there are clear instructions
and clear pictures to help you achieve everything.

I am finding that the more I practice each step the easier
I find the next step in the process.

Carole breaks everything down into small steps
so that you can easily progress.

It takes each part of drawing and breaks it down
so that it is easy to understand.

The book is designed for using pencils but I used
the same principles to draw on my tablet
and it worked really well.

You start the book off with the basics.
With everything from choosing your pencils, sharpening your pencil to how best to hold your pencil.

You are taken through step by step
on how to draw different types of lines,
shapes etc.
Then it's onto how to shade etc.

You will not believe how quickly you are
drawing different items.

I did struggle at times to exactly replicate some
of the pictures.  However I do feel that 
as I progress through the book this
will become easier.

If you are wanting to learn
all the different basics of drawing then 
this book is really worth it.
