The Zen drawing - eBook This eBook called 'The Zen drawing eBook' is the original electronic version of 'the Zen drawing Pack' by Michelle Dujardin, which was published as a hardcover book by Rockpoint publishers in October 2014.
Based on the works of Frederick Franck and Betty Edwards, artist Michelle Dujardin helps you to awaken your inner artist and add soul to your sketches by ignoring conventional drawing techniques and focus on really seeing your subject. Michelle helps you achieve a meditative state just by changing the way you see a subject, and allow your hands to follow the movement of your eyes. When you trust your own drawing reflex, the art that you create will become more expressive and beautiful than what you've done before.
Not great with a pencil? Don't worry, everyone can learn to draw this way and you don't need any special talent or class. For any level of artist, from a beginner with little talent to an illustration expert, Zen drawing is not about making perfect pictures, it is about the experience of drawing, finding inspiration, and connecting to the world around you.
Since interest in the Zen background of this way of drawing might vary from reader to reader, the authors also published two additional eBooks, each with their own emphasis on Zen Buddhism. The eBook with less emphasis on Zen Buddhism is called 'Zen drawing - a new way to become an artist' and this has the same exercises as the original electronic version of the eBook. The eBook called 'Zen drawing - a new way to become mindful' will give the reader a lot of background on (Zen) Buddhism and offers a different kind of exercises.
