This paper analyzes and reviews chapters seven and eight in Buser's "Experiencing Art Around Us", giving a personal reflection of the works. In particular, it is noted how the paper's author came to appreciate sketching and drawing after reading this book. Additionally, the paper comments on individual works of art, mostly from the Renaissance period. The paper further notes that the two chapters are incredibly well organized, providing a great deal of depth to the information at hand while still maintaining a great deal of clarity and ease of access to the material. The paper concludes by stating that Buser's approach of pointing out the various elements and techniques employed in finished works of art makes the subject matter far more attainable.

From the Paper:

"In chapter eight, Buser turns his attention to a very methodology--or methodologies, to be more precise--of two-dimensional image making. Printmaking has the advantage of being able to make multiple copies (or originals) of a given work of art, but as Buser explains the complexities of the various methods of printmaking render certain effects nearly impossible. His decision to place the chapter dealing with printmaking immediately after his examination and explanation of drawing makes these complexities much easier to understand; the basic elements that both media are able to bring to the finished product--line, shading, etc.--are largely the same, and understanding their interaction in something as simple and familiar as drawing makes understating their application in something as complex as printmaking much easier to understand. The effect that these basic elements produce are vastly different in printmaking, however, and Buser does an excellent job of explaining the multitude of ways in which these elements and methodologies can be exploited in the printmaking process, especially with the creation of color and the sharp definition that is possible."
