This guide to mastering the art of drawing begins with simple exercises in drawing shapes and single objects, and learning the rudiments of proportion, form and light, before progressing to still-life, landscape, the human figure and portraiture. In later chapters, Barrington Barber encourages the student to experiment, describing the styles and techniques available to the draughtsman, the skill of composition, and the value of studying the drawings of masters such as Raphael and Rubens.
