This is not a book to obtain final works nor is it a manual of artistic techniques step by step, for that there are already other extraordinary books, this book is a collection of 60 exercises to learn, from an already solved work and relying on watermarks, to see and use values, the textures and the stroke… with entertaining and engaging exercises. It is another way of approaching, through experience and drawing from the first moment, models specially made to facilitate learning.

Great artists such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Dalí, for example, have learned by copying works of art by Velázquez, Goya, Cézanne… Copying art is another way to learn and very stimulating.

The aim of the exercises in this book is to train your hand and your eyes so that you achieve the same chiaroscuro and detail as the reference drawings but with your personal style. To make these drawings you will only need graphite pencil and eraser.
