My 8 year old loves to draw and paint. He’s been attending extra-curricular art classes for a while and he absolutely loves learning new things. He has already told me he would go to more art classes if he could! I love encouraging his hobbies and was excited to be gifted two new books from Search Press: 10 Step Drawing Nature and 10 Step Drawing People. You may remember we previously reviewed 10 Step Drawing: Animals so we were excited to see these.
10 Step Drawing: People by Justine Lecouffe, draw 30 people in 10 easy steps
This is a beginner’s guide to drawing people in 10 simple steps and short explanations. If you love drawing people but don’t know where to start, this is the book for you! 10 Step Drawing: People will help you turn simple lines or shapes into life-like images in just 10 steps. There are instructions for the individual elements of the face and body, as well as complete faces and people. With advice on basic equipment and colouring techniques, each drawing includes colour palettes so readers can easily find the right tones for their drawing.
10 Step Drawing: Nature by Mary Woodin, draw 60 plants and animals in 10 easy steps
This is a beginners guide to drawing plants and animals in 10 simple steps, with helpful short explanations. If you love drawing plants and animals but don’t know where to start, this is the book for you! 10 Step Drawing: Nature will help you turn simple shapes into beautiful nature images in just 10 steps.
You can create 60 different flowers, trees, animals and objects, from a bird’s nest to a cheeky harvest mouse, by following the instructions inside.
Both these books are well laid out and a great way to learn to draw. They are perfect for beginners or those who want some instruction in how to improve their drawing skills. We would recommend this book for children and adults too.
