My List of Drawing, Sketching And Painting Books an Artist should have

Here is My List of Drawing, Sketching & Painting Book that I found Helpful, Informative & that guided me in Learning Drawing, Sketching & Painting.

American Artist like Andrew Loomis, George Bridgeman & their books are more or all about basic forms behind building & drawing Human figures.

But Indian Artist like S. D. Phadnis & his books is all about telling a story through drawings. I bought his book 20 years back & I am Still using it (I even bought new edition of his same book for my reference). As stated on his website “S D Phadnis, the creator of caption-less cartoons”
