Great art books are few and far between so when I find one that is fantastic, I just can't help but share the news. A student brought it into the studio and shared it with the class. Juliette Aristides has written a concise book on classical drawing with so many examples and illustrations . The best part is the DVD. Scenes from Florence and Venice make you want to grab your sketchbook, pencil, and buy a plane ticket for Italy. Her demonstrations are extremely informative and doable.
I've added this book to my list on the right side. Just scroll down and you can order it directly. It's affordable; less than $20 and the DVD is worth the price alone.
