When I first started college in January , I was starting a bit late and had to take the second drawing class first. I wanted to post this not to bash Nicolaides, but so that maybe others could avoid repeating our experience. He distinguishes between line drawing and what he calls 'mass drawing'—essentially monochrome painting. My all time favorite is Schmid's Alla Prima. Drawing the underlying construction is a fundamental skill for representational art, and is taught in many books and schools. They asked me for a list of the ten art instruction books that I thought were most useful, with a blurb about why I love each one.

In the studies in this volume, famous artist and art instructor Reginald Marsh brought his genius to bear on the complex problem of life drawing.
The pages of drawings in this volume show the human body in a wide variety of positions, viewed from many different angles. Marsh directs special attention to those angles, aspects, and physical positions which are the most difficult to portray. His great talent, coupled with a rare ability to instruct others Marsh taught at the Art Students League for many years gave him unusual sensitivity to the concerns of the artist in life drawing: his concise commentary on the drawing points up the problems addressed in each — tone, movement, proportion, composition, etc.
The front, side, back, head, arms and hands, legs and feet, and full figure drawings are all included. The body and parts of the body are drawn in skeleton, tissue and muscle, major bone structure, and as they appear in life.
