North Light is proud to present North Light Classic Editions -- art books that have proven themselves to be true "classics" of the category through consistently excellent sales and unanimously high praise. Each title bestowed this honor appears with an unmistakable blue seal designating them as the best of the best.

Bert Dodson's successful method of "teaching anyone who can hold a pencil" how to draw has made this tome one of the most popular, best-selling art books in history -- an essential reference for every artist's library!

Dodson offers a complete system for developing drawing skills, basing his approach on 55 "keys" to drawing -- rules that don't need to be memorized, but realized. Dodson helps artists learn to trust their eyes and sharpen their observation skills through 48 practice exercises, reviews, and self-evaluations. Topics include learning to control proportion, scale, movement, depth, pattern and more!
