Ways of Drawing : Artists' Perspectives and Practices, Hardback Book

Ways of Drawing : Artists' Perspectives and Practices Hardback

Edited by Julian Bell, Julia Balchin, Claudia Tobin


Ways of Drawing brings together a sophisticated, exciting range of reflections on markmaking by practising artists, teachers and writers.

From explorations of how it feels to draw and personal accounts of artistic development, to short, imaginative propositions for looking, understanding and experiencing afresh, this collection repositions drawing as a vital creative and intellectual endeavour.

The book is divided into three sections: 'Studio Space', which focuses on drawing within four walls; 'Open Space', which ventures out into the cityscapes and landscapes around us; and 'Inner Space', which returns to the living, feeling, drawing person.

Each section is comprehensively illustrated with a wealth of drawings, prints and paintings by faculty and alumni of the Royal Drawing School, works by established artists past and present, and photographs of artists at work.
