Drawing, painting and illustration techniques have remained the same for centuries. The methods used to create lifelike images, portraits or even cartoons have been passed down from artist to artist from one generation to the next.
Back in 1975, an Italian artist committed some of the most popular techniques to a series of books. The Leonardo Collections have been sold worldwide for nearly 5 decades and are now available in the United States exclusively through Total Art Cooperative.
There are 48 books in the series and are perfect for both beginners and professionals. Every book is packed with detailed illustrations and tips and techniques on a variety of subjects including basic drawing, illustration and painting. They also include titles that focus on portraits, animals, flowers and cartooning.
