  • Read e-book online Dein Zeichentalent ist kein Fisch: Die komplett andere PDF

    By David Köder

    Eine gute Nachricht für alle, die schon mehr oder weniger erfolglos versucht haben, zeichnen zu lernen: Es liegt nicht an fehlendem expertise oder an zu wenig üben. Es liegt an der Herangehensweise! Wer lernt, die Welt wirklich zu sehen, kann sie auch stressfrei zeichnen.

    Dieses Buch ist eine Einladung, es (noch mal) zu versuchen – in erprobten, machbaren, sichtbaren Schritten, mit spürbaren Erfolgserlebnissen von Anfang an, statt zu »probieren, ob guy es kann«. Mit lebendigen Texten, vielen Zeichnungen und durchdachten Übungen, vermittelt von einem, der das Zeichnen erst spät, aber bewusst gelernt hat.

    Auch wer Malbücher für Erwachsene oder Zentangle magazine, kann den Einstieg ins »echte« Zeichnen wagen – mit ähnlich guten Gefühlen. Neugier ist wichtig, Vorkenntnisse nicht. Und wer schon zeichnet, aber bisher nicht so weiterkommt wie erhofft, kann schmerzlos die eigenen Grundlagen überprüfen, Stolpersteine aufspüren und beseitigen.
    Aha-Momente in Sachen Wahrnehmung und sichtbare Fortschritte beim Zeichnen warten auf alle, die ein bisschen Neugier und Motivation mitbringen.
