Introduction to Drawing and Painting

A discussion of basic concepts and basic practice of drawing and painting. My aim is to offer a concise and comprehensive introduction to the development of artistic skills and the understanding of the creative process in the visual arts. Concise in the manner of presentation, and comprehensive in the clarification of the systematic relationships between the many dimensions of the activities of drawing and painting for those who start in the visual arts and hopefully usefull also for the more experienced student-artist.
