THE DRAWING HANDBOOK by DR XIE ZHAO PING Ph.D.XIE ZHOA PING is an original. An inventive writer whose knowledge and love of Art and Art History informs her understanding of Drawing. She is an author of intelligence, grace, humor, and drama, adept at the creation of Artistic insights and analysis. Her books have explored a wide variety of tones and venues, but they often return to an abiding interest in Artistic Genius and strategy the pursuit of Art as an intellectual passion and a physical mystery. Her admixture of Art, science, historiography, and Artistic adventure presents a compelling literary framework for enhancing our appreciation of the intellectual complexities and personal challenges of human artistic inquiry.

The short (and sometimes aphoristic) observations in The Drawing Handbook allow the reader to ponder basic questions on what informs Drawing, how creativity works in everyday artistic situations, and how images represent a creative universe. - Wally Hedrick, Artist, Croquet Official, Fix-It-Man

Written by one of the centurys truly great thinkers, Dr. XIE ZHOA PINGs The Drawing Handbook is a remarkableand surprisingly approachablecollection of insights, statements, and nearly displayed thinking habits of an Art Historian hard at work on Art,Drawing,creative strategies and methodologies, and a host of other topics. Organized into nearly 690 short observations, this book is a treasure trove for anyone who needs to think carefully about Drawing, visual elements, conventions, and principals, especially in relation to the investigation of artistic programming.
