Art Starts with a Line: A creative and interactive guide to the art of line drawing by Erin McManness

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

My Thoughts:

A fabulous starter’s guide on line drawing! The book is broken down into several categories, like Leaves, Buildings, Flowers, Supplies Needed, etc., and includes a section where she takes you step-by-step through the process of transferring your hand-drawn art to the digital format. There are also pages where you can try your own hand at drawing line art.

Of course, in art, you have to practice freely and copiously to warm up to it. This guide is like how maths is best learnt, you learn the methods and the limits of your tools and the rest is up to your prerogative. That way, you can apply those techniques on any scenarios and inject your own flair, as there are no cookie-cutter ways to art!

This book was provided to me for free, with thanks to Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley, in return for my honest opinion.
