Draw 50 Princesses teaches aspiring artists how to draw with ease by following simple, step-by-step instructions. Acclaimed author Lee J. Ames shows us how to draw an enchanting variety of beautiful princesses, including beloved favorites from fairy tales like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White as well as princesses from around the world. In these pages you’ll also find a castle, a throne, Prince Charming, and much more.
Lee J. Ames’s drawing method has proven successful for children and adults alike over the past thirty years. The twenty-nine books in the Draw 50 series have sold more than 3 million copies and have shown everyone from amateurs to experts how to draw everything from animals to airplanes.
Even the youngest artists can make these elegant ladies look great. It’s easy to draw princesses when you do it the Draw 50 way.


As you work, it is a good idea to have a mirror available. Holding your sketch up to the mirror from time to time can show you distoritons you might not see otherwise.
As you are adding to the steps, you may discover that they are becoming too dark. Here's where the kneaded eraser becomes particularly useful. You ca lighten the darker penciling by strongly pressing the clay-like eraser onto the dark areas...Remember, if your first attempts do not turn out too well, it's important to keep trying. Practice and patience do indeed help. I would like you to know that on occasion when I have used the steps for a drawing from one of my own books, it has taken me as along as an hour or two to bring it to a finish.
