Draw like a Pro
This Mother’s Day get something to feed your mother’s soul, helping her to relax and slow down, renew herself, and explore new sides of her creativity. Many people don’t how they can benefit from a mindful activity such as art, and grow discouraged out of a fear of not being skilled enough. Help your mom learn to draw with 100 Faces and Figures, a step-by-step, realistic line-drawing book by Chris Legaspi. A source book for aspiring artists and designers, it breaks down the difficulties of realistic drawing by helping students recreate basic faces, figures and poses in a few simple strokes. You’ll also learn how to see in perspective when drawing, and how to translate what you see into what you draw. Delightful and challenging, it takes all the stress out of learning to draw.
A True Artist’s Eye
If your mom is already an artist and aspires to push it further, pick up Look Closer, Draw Better, which features expert techniques for realistic drawing by Kateri Ewing.

Simple practical techniques will help improve skills when trying to convey different textures, whether they be the delicate petals of flowers, or the velvety feeling of a leaf, so that your drawing is more realistic.
