Charley Harper masterfully portrayed a host of species using simple lines and shapes. This sketchbook gives you the opportunity to learn how Harper captured his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. For each of the 28 birds featured herein, there is an included four-page presentation. On the first page, you will find line drawings that show a three-stage process for re-creating Harper’s image. The line drawings build on each other: the first one presents the most basic shapes, the second further develops the form of the bird, and the third completes the image with all the details. Following the line drawings are two uncoated sheets on which you can mimic these lines and shapes. Harper’s original full-color bird image completes each sequence.


Size: 8.25 x 10.25 in.
