Thoughts on Beginning Artist Books

Beginning Art Books 1

There are many wonderful beginner books.  Mostly these are good for introducing you to the medium and getting you started with some techniques.  The problem becomes staying in them too long because you don’t feel like your art is good enough to move on.  More than likely your skill level will never be as good as the art in the book, and that’s ok.

Once you’ve done some paintings or drawings from those beginning books, move on to the more advanced books.  Your skill level will improve much more quickly that way.  Find an artist that does a style that you enjoy and has instructional books or videos and learn from them.

So if you’ve been in beginning books for a while, it may be time to move up.  You may just notice a jump in the improvement on your work.
