Barrington Barber’s art books have sold over 4 million copies round the world, and work on one guiding principle – that anyone can draw!

With a little persistence and desire, you too can learn the fundamentals of drawing – which have guided artists for centuries – in this handy video course.

Join Barrington on a set of exercises and watch a master at work. From mapping out the basic form of an apple to eventually creating a realistic portrait, you’ll pick up the techniques which will shape your entire drawing career. You can then go on to apply these to any subject of your choice, gaining independence as an artist. You’ll also cover areas such as perspective, composition, landscapes and still life.

A tailored PDF guide accompanies each section, with salient tips that’ll stick with you as an artist.

So grab your pencil and paper – let’s master The Fundamentals of Drawing!

Who is the target audience?
