L'essentiel des techniques du dessin, en toute simplicité, et à la portée d'un amateur débutant. Les grandes pages du livre sont remplies pour moitié d'illustrations au crayon agréables et stimulantes, de quoi nous motiver et nous donner les moyens.. on ne peut s'empêcher de chercher un crayon et un bout de papier!
(Le texte est en anglais, mais avec un dico pour quelques mots au début, il y a moins de vocabulaire que dans un roman.)
Every thing explained, step by step, and shown through pictures, to start drawing scenery: the choice of paper and pencil, the composition of a scenery, depth and distance, trees, rocks, water, clouds, moonlight, buildings...
I love this book: the essential drawing techniques, in a simple playful agreable way. The large white pages are half covered with interesting pencil illustrations, one can't wait to take a pencil and a sketch pad!

This is an undauntingly thin (and affordable) book so you don't feel physically (or psychically) overwhelmed picking it up. Thin, but JAM-PACKED with nothing but the good stuff. Put this thing in your Cart and go right to check out. The friendliest art instruction book I've ever seen.
Get it, or have someone get it for you!
This is the most difficult of those three volumes. Prepare to spend some time reading and studying it. I felt like I was back in college, and progressed through it one page at a time doing sketches on index cards with a soft pencil to test the ideas and theories he put forward -- and unlike many other art books I've read or classes I've taken, concepts like composition, balance, light and perspective made sense to me after studying this book. It's not a light read but it's so rich.
Jack Hamm's style is engaging but it's very content-dense. His books are the peak of the example-heavy content-rich concise style of art instruction. Step by step projects and long personal essays on technique and feeling aren't what Jack Hamm is about, although his style is engaging he doesn't seem to have the ego that many art instruction writers do. He doesn't claim his methods or compositions or styles are the best. He describes as many different ways to do things as they are and constantly encourages imagination, originality and personal style.
He distinguishes realism from artistic exaggeration and explains effectively why you can't just rely on a photo or even on what you see to create a good believable picture. I'm a writer who has spent a lifetime trying to learn self-illustration and his explanations have successfully broken some mental barriers like overdetailing, lack of focus, bad composition, inconsistent lighting. He encourages boldness and daring.
He has specific examples and details of everything I'd need to use in a scene, from clouds and waves to rocks and trees and houses. Most of all he shows how to create drama within a scene, no matter what the subject is it can be rendered a little bolder than life, it can convey emotion and tell a story.
I'd recommend this without reservation, order all three of them if you don't have them. All of these books have one quality in common. Even after they're read, they are great permanent references with examples of trees, waves, houses, styles of clouds -- the cloud chart pages are great -- so if I'm doing a drawing I can flip to the right section and get ideas for how to handle the sky or what I can do to make the gnarled tree look like endurance.
These books are the kind that will wear out from constant use and need replacing if you're at all fond of drawing, because there's always something new and interesting to find for any future artwork. This is why these classics are still in print. Check out the other two and consider his cartooning book as well if you have any interest in cartooning.
