This is a great little instruction book that introduces people like myself with no talent for drawing to the basics of single-line drawing in a completely accessible way. I appreciated just how fully it broke the steps down and demystified the process and made me feel like I could actually follow.

Thank you Heinke Nied, Quarto Publishing Group – Walter Foster, Walter Foster Publishing, and NetGalley for providing this ARC for review consideration. All opinions expressed are my own.

I am the kind of readter who likes a lot check it out books with the most random kinds of content and that's the reason why I picked the title, and Icannot regret, because I have always find beautiful these kind of design art with one single line. Thank You netgalley for presenting this to me.

I loved this book! I felt it was very easy to follow along with the demonstrations and the instructions were not too challenging. Even as a beginner, I felt like I could jump right in and follow along. This is a great book and I will be recommending it to others!

I chose this book as I love doodling and have a BuJo that I feel would look cute with some fun little one-line drawings. There are 6 different sections within the book - Flowers & Leaves, Plants, Faces, Lifestyle, Still Life and Celebrations. The examples provided within all sections are easy to follow then gradually get harder towards the end of the section.

I think with a bit of practice you could really get good at one-line drawing following this book. I would love to own a physical version of this book so I could trace and follow some of the guides until I feel more confident attempting them on my own. I'll be adding this one to my wishlist!

It's a nice book to learn to draw simple drawings. It's nicely explained and fits in promised 15 minute. That makes it easy to fit in the day and practice some drawing.

I had so much fun reviewing this book, I have 2 daughters, one will be 15 and one will be 18 soon , so I thought maybe this will be something that we could do together because we love to draw.

So as a good mom I decided I would try first and I love the details in this beautiful book. I love the step-by-step instructions Teaching you each technique because I am a very visualized person I have to see in order to do.

I feel this book can be for a wide range of ages, Because it is very well laid out and again, there are pictures showing you step by step And she also gives you instructions in writing.

This is seriously fun to try. I never did one-line drawing before, but I saw it on social media and was excited to try it. It starts out simple, so everyone can follow and it gets progressively harder. My drawings didn't look much like the book, but it was to try. :)

The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. And the book itself is so pretty! A fun book to have and learn from.

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher.
I truly enjoyed this art drawing tutorial book. Lovely drawings and my favorite is the section with faces.

Simple to follow and a fun way to learn doing drawings for beginners or if you need inspiration. Good variety so you can try different things to draw.

What a beautiful little book. Well written, clever and quite helpful to anyone wishing to draw what he/she sees, I think this is a perfect companion for those who like to just doodle and "make stuff", as I do.

Very well done.

Great tips and easy exercises. I have a bujo and I have been thinking of incorporating one-line drawings to my journal alongside doodles and zentangles. So this book comes in handy. The well-explained models are perfect training to start one-line drawing.
I think I've found myself a new hobby!

Full disclosure - I can't draw. However, I've tried a couple of the more basic doodles in this book, and it actually appears as though I can! I'm excited to go through the whole book. It's beautifully designed and lots of fun.

Many thanks to Heinke Nied, NetGalley, and Walter Foster Publishing for this copy.

Learn to draw Pinterest-perfect one-line artwork for beginners!

I've tried to draw line art by looking at cool Etsy and Pinterest art and copying it, but it never looked right. 15-Minute Drawing: One-Line Drawing by Heinke Nied is exactly what any weekend warrior or hobby artist needs to get started.

Along with some great warm ups, there are six sections: Flowers & leaves, Plants, Faces, Lifestyle, Still life and Celebrations.

You don't need to start with Flowers & leaves and go chronologically through the book. Instead, after doing the warm up, flip to whichever section interests you best and start from there. I like how Heinke Nied starts each section with an easier line drawing, then progressively the drawings get more elaborate and detailed.

I felt so much more confident in my line-drawing after going through this book. Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this advanced reader copy.

This book is best read when you're feeling curious, because believe me, you'll surprise yourself with how much fun you're having.

I can’t wait to get doodling. These examples are really easy to follow. The step by step guide is straight forward and even I, a not very competent artist, think I could follow this and produce something good.

4.5/5 stars⭐️

As someone who never leaves the house without a small sketchbook in my bag, I jumped at the chance to get a peek into "15-Minute Drawing: One-Line Drawing'' by Heinke Nied. I use my book to jot down inspiration when it comes to me as I can't always rely on remembering later. I don't draw well at all, (hello, inner critic!) but I've recently found that a simple sketch with a black line can come to life beautifully with some added watercolor. I've also recently been introduced to "fodder" which I love to make and cut out for my junk journal pages. This book is a wonderful guide to making these design elements.

This book is full of inspiration for all, divided into subject sections and breaks those drawings down into 3 levels of difficulty. We are not talking full out scenes, but single designs to inspire and get you started with your sketch. I particularly liked the section on plants and profiles and plan to practice on these areas to improve my skill set. While these are simple designs, they, like anything else, will require practice to increase your comfort level.

I chose this book because when I lead groups or classes I like to add an artistic element that group members can learn and use at home. This 15 minute one line drawing instructional book is straightforward, approachable, and user friendly. I appreciated the tip about warming up your wrist to prepare for more detailed one line drawing. This is a technique I will use in my practice as a group facilitator. The illustrations are lovely and I enjoyed the inspirations at the back of the book, as well as the finishing details the author added to each one line drawing.

I received an ARC courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. The opinions are my own.

Difficulty levels from 1 (easy) to 3 (difficult) make choosing what to draw a simple task.

Easy to follow along step by step instructions including drawing tips make for a fun relaxing book.

This is a pretty neat way of drawing! Harder than it looks at times but it’s a neat idea! Very simple drawings to ones with a little more detail. Quick and fun little way to pass some time and practice a new way of artwork.
Thank you NetGalley for the chance of an honest review

Oh, I loved this! I started reading it thinking I couldn’t draw, and have finished feeling really proud of my sketches! It really is that simple! You don’t need any special equipment, previous knowledge, or natural ability, this book walks you through step by step, and has you producing quality line drawings in a matter of moments. From beautiful flowers and foods, to faces and celebrations, this book walks you through effortlessly. The difficulty rating is a neat feature, as well as the inspirational gallery at the end.
Grab a pen, a notebook, and you’re ready to go - it’s that simple!
Would definitely recommend.
Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group – Walter Foster and Netgalley for an eARC of this book to read and review.
