Please try again later. I worked all the way through chapter I went from not being to draw at all to being able to do the self-portrait I've posted with this review. I did this drawing while looking at myself in the mirror.

This is not an easy thing to do, but this book not only taught me the skills but also gave me the confidence to do this. This book is a serious book. It's not a copy book or a "step-by-step" recipe book for drawing like someone else.

This book will really and truly teach you how to draw and how to understand what drawing is and what it is not. This was primarily due to the drawing skills and artist's work ethic I learned from this book. In fact, some of the exercises in her book sound like they were taken from the Nicolaides book even though she does not acknowledge his influence.

Some art teachers I have met sneer at this book, but they don't sneer at the results. It should be understood that this book will give you an outstanding foundation for future development in drawing and painting.

Your big problem after that will be finding good teachers. site Edition Verified download. You could pretty much sum up "The Natural Way to draw" by saying "Nicolaides was a God and walk away from the review, but some details are necessary.

Nicolaides was an art teacher from an earlier age when representative art produced by hand meant something. His book is a program that you can follow alone and without a teacher that, if you have the kind of determination that people had in the early part of the last century, will take you from "I can make circles but they all look like eggs" to "I can draw well enough to understand what I need to do to draw better.

To make it work ,you'll have to do exercises in developing visual perception and hand-eye coordination that are still taught in drawing classes today, but getting them from Nicolaides, and therefore outside of a classroom or even an atelier-environment, is like tightrope walking without a net: I think working with Nicolaides is a good idea blind contour sketching will improve your ability to draw but I don't think you want The Natural Way to Draw to be your only book on drawing.

You need other books like "drawing on the right side of the brain by Betty Edwards or "Classical Drawing Atelier" by Aristedes to round out your program of teaching yourself drawing. By having them and using them, you can give yourself a break from sketching everything under the sun without looking down at the paper: Bottom Line: Oh, again, Nicolaides was a god.

An answer to reviews critical of The Natural Way to Draw. This is not part of the actual review and can be safely ignored. They simply fail to understand Nicolaides's style or the time in which he wrote. To understand and appreciate the natural way to draw, requires that the reader be able to use his imagination to understand the book through its historical context.

The Natural way to draw raises a "meta-question" about books on drawing: Every schmuck in the world has a multimegapixel camera in his phone and grew up in a culture where he considers it his or her absolute right to photograph your face without your permission and to publish it in the way that best pleases him.

So why spend lots of good video-gaming time in front of a drawing pad? The reason is that drawing is still the best and most effective way to filter and image through the human mind and hand to create things that the cold precision of the camera cannot do: A draftsman drawing a woman he loves will produce something that will if he is good reflect and recreate in all who see his drawing, his personal and human desire to touch her.

If you don't believe that, look at the way that Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt draw women in their pencil sketches and then tell me how you're going to do anything like that with a Hasselblad or a Leica.

Once you've digested that, you have to stretch yourself to the breaking point and understand that Nicolaides died in It is possible that he never saw a television set and it is absolutely certain that he was no participant in our modern televisual culture.

He didn't ramble: Not "watched" but "read. It will teach you focus, and patience. Look closely at the way the hatching has been done, how the values are created, the subtlety of the marks, and try to match all of those as closely as you can.

It will be very hard.

It will teach you an incredible amount about drawing. To get a huge amount of benefit from this book, you just have to copy a few of them. Then watch what happens the next time you try to draw something from life. If you want to improve your composition skills, this book is the one. It is filled with practical exercises. It is very short on theory and justification. There is zero author ego. But more than any of the other books here, it allows you to grow as an artist and as an individual.

This book can also be downloaded for free. Whilst all of the drawing exercises in the book are available elsewhere, and the idea of right brain drawing is oversimplified and slightly gimmicky, this is still a great book. It will never be a waste of time.
