Rate this:

This sixth volume in the celebrated Strokes of Genius series explores the power of value. From the darkest darks to the lightest lights and all the notes in between, value can build works of incredible complexity, or pure and simple poetry. More than any other single element of art, value has the power to force a flat surface into a realistic sense of dimension, convey textures, establish mood, and evoke terrific plays of light and shadow. In the hands of the skillful artists in this book, value draws us in, tells stories, and transports us to sights and scenes from the artist's unique perspective

140 drawings from 100+ artists in charcoal, pencil, pastel, colored pencil, and pen and ink A diversity of styles and approaches, presented in subject-themed chapters: portraits, still lifes, figures, landscapes and animals Comments from the artists offering fresh-from-the-studio insight and ideas not found anywhere else. From breathtaking realism to on-location sketches, Strokes of Genius 6 promises hours of enjoyment and inspiration for artists in any medium.
