Composition and Perspective – A simple, yet powerful way to draw stunning, expressive sketches

If I knew every step needed to write and publish a book, I would never write a book!
 
Fortunately, I did not!
 
I learned many of the steps (and still learning) on the job and published my first book, Get-Set-Sketch!.
 
Following in the footsteps of “Get-Set-Sketch!”, my second book “Composition and Perspective – A simple, yet powerful way to draw stunning, expressive sketches” is available on the Amazon Kindle store.

https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07KVFZ9CC
 
Both these books will be available (in print format) at heavy discounts in my upcoming art exhibition, सैरArt. Stay tuned!

Understanding values (dark, light and mid tones) is extremely important when sketching/painting, even though the painting may be fully colored.

If you are sketching in monochrome, values help identify various elements from each other.

If you are sketching in colors, values lend a certain jazz, character and contrast to the sketch.
