Ways of Drawing: Artists' Perspectives and Practices

Ways of Drawing: Artists' Perspectives and Practices


Julian Bell, Julia Balchin, Claudia Tobin

ISBN 9780500021903

Many great examples of drawing accompany essays on drawing as a vital intellectual, artistic and life practice, by the artists of the Royal Drawing School.

Ways of Drawing brings together a fabulous 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.

Highly recommended.
