Memory Drawing

Darren R. Rousar   December 3, 2016

Why should an artist bother to train their visual memory, and what does that even mean? Can't I just paint what's in front of me, or from a photograph, or from my imagination? These are the kinds of questions I sometimes get from students when I bring up the subject of memory drawing.

Landscape Painting

Darren R. Rousar   December 3, 2016

The Hudson River School and the Tonalist Movement are two great periods in American landscape painting. Beyond the examples of their paintings, we are fortunate to have what are considered to be each movements textbooks: Asher B. Durand's, Letters on Landscape Painting (1855) and Birge Harrison's Landscape Painting (1910). Now, for the first time, both books are available in one volume.

Drawing Made Easy

Darren R. Rousar   December 3, 2016

Once a classic drawing instruction manual that was used to teach countless children and young adults how to draw, Drawing Made Easy by E. G. Lutz is now back in print after many years absence. Hallmarks of his approach are simplifying complex shapes as well as working from big to small. These concepts are simple enough for children to understand and yet the same principles are evident in many Old Master drawings.
