This compilation of some of our most popular How to Draw and Paint and Artist's Library series titles gives artists the perfect introduction to the basics of drawing. The Art of Basic Drawing contains fundamental information about tools and techniques, as well as a number of inspiring step-by-step lessons. With instruction and advice from five different accomplished artists, this book showcases a range of styles for beginners to imitate.
‘Drawing in colour’ is a slightly unusual title, because the obvious
comment is, ‘How does that differ from painting?’ Well, in this
book I examine no fewer than four methods of drawing in
various colour mediums, only one of which is connected with
painting. I will be showing examples – and how to go about them
– of drawing in coloured pencil, pastel or crayon, coloured inks
and watercolour painting, which can be heavily conditioned
One of the most popular drawing guides ever published, The Art of Drawing has been an informative and thorough guide to several generations of aspiring artists. For fifty years, Willy Pogany has given the main principles of drawing in a simple, constructive way. By following the sequences laid out in the lessons, students quickly master the art of drawing.
As a further aid, Pogany gives a complete anatomical description of the body for each section, including a list of all bones and a description of the muscles and their uses.
Drawing portraits has always been, and will continue to be one of the greatest aspects of drawing.
I found my first serious love of drawing when I traveled to Florence, Italy. It was there that I saw the many artists drawing portraits on the street. I would stand and stare at their amazing technique - for me, watching them work was a new experience and one of my most cherished memories from my travels in Europe.
Permit me in the first place to anticipate the disappointment of any student who opens this book with the idea of finding "wrinkles" on how to draw faces, trees, clouds, or what not, short cuts to excellence in drawing, or any of the tricks so popular with the drawing masters of our grandmothers and still dearly loved by a large number of people. No good can come of such methods, for there are no short cuts to excellence.

The object of this little work is to fill a void much complained of by Daguerreotypists--particularly young
The author has waited a long time in hopes that some more able pen would be devoted to the subject, but the
wants of the numerous, and constantly increasing, class, just mentioned, induces him to wait no longer.
All the English works on the subject--particularly on the practical application, of Photogenic drawing--are
deficient in many minute details, which are essential to a complete understanding of the art.
The course focuses on the exciting field of deep learning. By drawing inspiration from neuroscience and statistics, it introduces the basic background on neural networks, back propagation, Boltzmann machines, autoencoders, convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks. It illustrates how deep learning is impacting our understanding of intelligence and contributing to the practical design of intelligent machines.
Finance has become increasingly more quantitative, drawing on techniques in probability and statistics that many finance practitioners have not had exposure to before. In order to keep up, you need a firm understanding of this discipline.
Probability and Statistics for Finance addresses this issue by showing you how to apply quantitative methods to portfolios, and in all matter of your practices, in a clear, concise manner. Informative and accessible, this guide starts off with the basics and builds to an intermediate level of mastery. ...
Conclusion: Toward a Science of Implementation
Public-health strategies draw largely on quantitative methods—from epidemiology and biostatistics, but also from economics. Clinical practice, including internal medicine, draws on a rapidly expanding knowledge base but remains focused on individual patient care; clinical interventions are rarely population-based. In fact, neither public-health nor clinical approaches alone will prove adequate in addressing the problems of global health.
The objective of medicine is to address people’s unavoidable
needs for emotional and physical healing. The discipline has
evolved over millennia by drawing on the religious beliefs and
social structures of numerous indigenous peoples, by exploit-
ing natural products in their environments, and more recently
by developing and validating therapeutic and preventive
approaches using the scientific method.
