Las Bases del dibujo
Author: Mercedes Braunstein
Cualquier expresión pictórica realizada con el medio que sea sobre un soporte comienza por saber dibujar. Y esta también es una base para abordar un trabajo de pintura con solvencia, aunque el dibujo por sí mismo ya tiene plena carta de validez artística. El dibujo puede realizarse con muchos instrumentos, pero antes de empezar hay que saber toda una serie de cuestiones como el cocimiento de los materiales, la elección del modelo y también de su encuadre de acuerdo con unas medidas. Practicar con trazos, manchas, difuminados antes de comenzar a dibujar. Y tener conocimientos de perspectivas y con ellas el trazado de las sombras o la aplicación del color. Todo un bagaje de conocimientos que ayudarán a dibujar con éxito.
Este libro aporta métodos inéditos en la enseñanza del dibujo que estimulan desde el primer momento la práctica, el aprender haciendo y principios teóricos de difícil comprensión para un principiante. Proponemos partir de la práctica para llegar al concepto. Las páginas de práctica las identificaremos con el nombre ?Aprender haciendo?, y las que recogerán la explicación de los conceptos y demás aspectos ?teóricos? las llamaremos ?Cuadernos de notas? y ?Análisis?.
