How to See, How to Draw

Keys to Realistic Drawing
Author: Claudia Nice

This book begins with learning how to observe- to see what's really there, not what you want to see. Observation is a skill thats learned and practiced, and one of the hallmarks of successful artists is that they know how to look at a subject with clear vision unfettered by preconceived notions or old habits. Using reference photos, diagrams, sketches and comparative examples, the author shows you first how to observe an object, and second how to translate that observation into an accurate rendering using graphite pencils, charcoal pencils and pen and ink.

Young Men and the Sea

Yankee Seafarers in the Age of Sail
Author: Daniel Vickers,Vince Walsh
Publisher: Yale University Press
ISBN: 9780300123661
Category: History
Page: 336
View: 3079
Two centuries of American maritime history, in which the Atlantic Ocean remained the great frontier Westward expansion has been the great narrative of the first two centuries of American history, but as historian Daniel Vickers demonstrates here, the horizon extended in all directions. For those who lived along the Atlantic coast, it was the East?and the Atlantic Ocean?that beckoned. While historical and fictional accounts have tended to stress the exceptional circumstances or psychological compulsions that drove men to sea, this book shows how normal a part of life seafaring was for those living near a coast before the mid?nineteenth century. Drawing on records of several thousand seamen and their voyages from Salem, Massachusetts, Young Men and the Sea offers a social history of seafaring in the colonial and early national period. In what sort of families were sailors raised? When did they go to sea? What were their chances of death? Whom did they marry, and how did their wives operate households in their absence? Answering these and many other questions, this book is destined to become a classic of American social and maritime history.

"Grips you by the throat from beginning to end."—Cleveland Plain Dealer ALONE WITH HER NEW HUSBAND on a tiny Pacific atoll, a young woman, combing the beach, finds an odd aluminum container washed up out of the lagoon, and beside it on the sand something glitters: a gold tooth in a scorched human skull. The investigation that follows uncovers an extraordinarily complex and puzzling true-crime story. Only Vincent Bugliosi, who recounted his successful prosecution of mass murderer Charles Manson in the bestseller Helter Skelter, was able to draw together the hundreds of conflicting details of the mystery and reconstruct what really happened when four people found hell in a tropical paradise. And the Sea Will Tell reconstructs the events and subsequent trial of a riveting true murder mystery, and probes into the dark heart of a serpentine scenario of death.

Passage to Juneau

A Sea and Its Meanings
Author: Jonathan Raban
Publisher: Vintage
ISBN: 0307797260
Category: Travel
Page: 448
View: 7251
With the same rigorous observation (natural and social), invigorating stylishness, and encyclopedic learning that he brought to his National Book Award-winning Bad Land, Jonathan Raban conducts readers along the Inside Passage from Seattle to Juneau. The physical distance is 1,000 miles of difficult-and often treacherous-water, which Raban navigates solo in a 35-foot sailboat. But Passage to Juneau also traverses a gulf of centuries and cultures: the immeasurable divide between the Northwest's Indians and its first European explorers-- between its embattled fishermen and loggers and its pampered new class. Along the way, Raban offers captivating discourses on art, philosophy, and navigation and an unsparing narrative of personal loss. From the Trade Paperback edition.
