A Visual Languageis a practical book, with a strong, innovative methodology for approaching the visual arts. Following the same structure as the first edition, A Visual Languagestarts with the basics of drawing and composition, and gradually moves on to explore more complex arrangements, including abstract and representational analysis and composition. Building on the principles of visual language established in their last book, this revised second edition expands particularly on three-dimensional forms. In the last chapter, a selection of sketchbook studies on international artists from various different visual disciplines demonstrates the methods presented earlier in the book, and helps visual artists to develop skills and confidence in their artistic work. Illustrated with brand new photographs and diagrams throughout, this book is essential reading for any artist, regardless of their level, and the only introduction to the visual arts that a beginner should require.
