About the Book
Learn to draw and paint more than 100 of your favorite everyday items! Step-by-step projects and creative inspiration make it fun and easy.

The Inspired Artist series invites art hobbyists and casual art enthusiasts to have fun learning basic art concepts, relaxing into the creative process to make art in a playful, contemporary style. With Draw Every Little Thing, the first book in this new series, you can learn to draw and paint your favorite everyday items. From learning to draw and paint plants, flowers, and bicycles to the neighborhood cafĂ© and the contents of the kitchen cabinet, this contemporary drawing book demonstrates just how easy it is to render the world around you with little more than a pencil, paper, and paint.

Following a brief introduction to the joys of simplistic drawing and painting, this aesthetically pleasing book familiarizes you with a range of drawing tools and materials, including graphite pencilpen and inkcolored pencil, and gouache, before offering a quick overview of basic color theory.

This accessible book encourages you to jump around so you can draw what immediately inspires you. Interactive prompts, creative exercises, and inspiring ideas make the process fun and engaging. Easy techniques and helpful instructions show you how to develop your own personal style, as well as add color to your drawings using gouache and colored pencil. Crafty projects round out the book, allowing you to use your newfound drawing and painting skills.

Filled to the brim with whimsical artwork and loads of creative ideasDraw Every Little Thing encourages artists of all skill levels to draw any time inspiration strikes.

My Take on the Book
This was a great drawing book that had great instruction on how to draw so many things! You can learn how to draw 100 things and to be honest, I found that I got better and better the more times I practiced. Once I got comfortable with the instruction I was able to make modifications that made the images even more unique. If you love to draw with your kids this is a book that will really help you get better at drawing!
