Book Description

Aug. 25 2011

Aimed at and written for “the beginning art student” and the “interested amateur,” Drawing and Rendering by Doug White is an instructive and informative guidebook that will be of use to anyone with artistic drawing aspirations – no matter their experience level.
Mr. White presents a detailed and descriptive handbook with logical step-by-step suggestions, ensuring the reader will have a full grasp on aspects of drawing that are as specific as how to measure the correct shape and dimensions to all elements within the human form. While this method has worked for Mr. White’s extensive professional art career, he is not hesitant to admit that “once you have memorized and absorbed the rules and what they represent to you, you may want to change them, alter them, reverse or even eliminate them.” After all, this is art!
DRAWING AND RENDERING provides structured information as well as practical advice such as what are the best and most economical supplies to purchase. Every page has at least one image to inspire and instruct, including multiple “gallery” sections of full color artwork from the author and contributing artists. Spanning from the basic elements to how to sketch different fabrics to detailed human portraits, DRAWING AND RENDERING THE FIGURE is an in-depth and easy-to-follow guide that will generate artistic excitement from even the most hesitant student.

About the Author

Doug White’s professional art career began in 1966. While still attending art school in Detroit, Michigan, he was hired as the junior apprentice to one of his drawing teachers. From that single experience, Mr. White was “smitten” by drawing and the idea of making drawing a life’s effort. After working in commercial art and advertising for twenty years, Mr. White has found his happiness passing on his craft as a teacher at George Brown Colleges, School of Design and working on his personal artistic development as a Canadian Landscape painter.
