Ways of Drawing brings together a sophisticated, exciting range of reflections on markmaking by practising artists, teachers and writers. From explorations of how it feels to draw and personal accounts of artistic development, to short, imaginative propositions for looking, understanding and experiencing afresh, this collection repositions drawing as a vital creative and intellectual endeavour.

The book is divided into three sections: 'Studio Space', which focuses on drawing within four walls; 'Open Space', which ventures out into the cityscapes and landscapes around us; and 'Inner Space', which returns to the living, feeling, drawing person. Each section is comprehensively illustrated with a wealth of drawings, prints and paintings by faculty and alumni of the Royal Drawing School, works by established artists past and present, and photographs of artists at work.

'Drawing is returned to its rightful place as an invigorating force' - Art Books of the Year, The Times
'Inspiring' - Artists & Illustrators
'Grapples with the paradox of learning to shed one's preconceptions and practices' - World of Interiors
'More than a teach-yourself manual, offering prescriptive lessons in perspective or proportion, colour palettes or light ... the emphasis of this book is on range, on a variety of approaches' - The Times
'Excellent ... this book is the most engaging, informative and affirming I have read on the making of drawing' - RA Magazine
