Ten Years Later

Darren R. Rousar   November 11, 2017

On November 12, 2007 I released Cast Drawing Using the Sight-Size Approach, the first book to be focused exclusively on Sight-Size cast drawing. On the same day I inaugurated sightsize.com. Since then I have written and published five other books, produced a DVD, and republished three books that were then out-of-print. It is now ten years later.

Sight-Size is the best way to learn to see because it allows you to directly, and accurately, compare your artwork to nature
through a visual one-to-one relationship.
