20 WAYS TO DRAW A TREE AND 44 OTHER NIFTY THINGS FROM NATURE BY ELOISE RENOUF






I have to admit that this is a book that I really wish I had as a child. It is so helpful in such a simple way. The way that I learnt art at school was basically to look at something and draw it the best that I could. However, 20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things from Nature by Eloise Renouf provides different groupings and shows different patterns and outlines on how to draw a particular object. It is all quite simple, yet clever and beautiful. 

When the six-year-old received this book as a gift recently, he was excited to put it to use straight away. We both were! And while it's not a step-by-step guide, it's quite a fun book to pick up and choose a page at random to begin learning new ways to draw.
