Description

Based on the author's own workshops, this title helps new artists create competent, eloquent drawings. A series of progressive lessons demonstrates such essential skills as recording edges, creating dimensions, adding accuracy, developing value, compositional balancing elements, and drawing the human face, both frontal and profile views. Step by step readers learn how to create a reasonable likeness of an object and give it spatial depth using simple black-and-white mediums such as pens, pencils, charcoal and graphite wash. Examples and tips for success from beginning students who have worked on the same material confirm readers' successes and allow them to consider the advice and impressions of others at the same level.show more
