In addition the cost of manufacturing has in­creased enormously during the last thirty years. A new book, the size of the original volume,would now have to be sold at a prohibitive price. So revision and condensation were necessities.Thinking of my long friendship with Arthur L. Guptill and remembering the way he thought and wrote has helped, I trust, in my revision of his text. A number of chapters have been com­bined; several, covered in other books, have been dropped; two, The Pen Combined With Other Mediums and Pen and Ink in Illustration, have been entirely re-written; and a short concluding chapter has been added. The greater part of Arthur Guptill’s explanatory drawings as well as a good many examples of work by other artists have been retained. To this has been added almost a hundred examples of newer work. I am happy to have had a hand in again making this useful book available to students and lovers of the ink technique

This classic guide offers clear, concise instruction in the basics as well as the finer points of pencil drawing. Appropriate for beginning and intermediate students, it features sixty-six well-chosen illustrations that encompass a wide range of subjects — mainly architectural, but also people, animals, and landscapes — and demonstrate a tremendous variety of techniques.An architect, painter, art director, and teacher, Arthur L. Guptill wrote several popular books on drawing. He begins this two-part treatment, aimed at architects, artists, and students, with discussions of drawing objects in outline and in light and shade, the principles of freehand perspective, methods of cast and life drawing, and sketching animals. The second part examines the choice of subjects and drawing in outline and in flat and graded tones. The important subject of composition receives considerable attention, with particular focus on unity and balance. Additional topics include working from photographs and from nature, the representation of buildings — including exteriors, interiors, and street scenes—and portraying details and accessories, from furniture, draperies, doors, and windows to clouds, water, and trees

"Tailored to both beginner- and intermediate-level illustrators, this highly enjoyable guide and reference was written by Arthur L. Guptill, co-founder of Watson-Guptill Publications and one of the leading art instruction authors of the twentieth century. Filled with tips, methods, and techniques on outlining, shading, stippling, portraiture, and much more, this fully illustrated introduction will help readers develop their drawing and sketching skills according to their abilities and interests.<BR /> Starting with the representation of forms, values of light and dark, and the interpretation of color, the guide progresses from elementary to advanced considerations, with explanations and illustrations for each step. Pencil, crayon, charcoal, pen and ink, wash, and watercolor techniques are examined, along with a variety of unique methods that achieve original effects. Intended chiefly for enjoyment rather than commercial application, the book focuses on the sketching of objects, outdoor subjects, landscapes, animals, and people. Readers are encouraged to think for themselves and to experiment in order to develop a natural and individual style"--
