By successfully combining theory and practice, this page-by-page course provides the tools and information necessary for any artist to develop strong observational, organizational, and expressive drawing skills. The instructions include a discussion of the uses and history of drawing materials; then they present the basics of composition and controlling representational shading. Seven distinct shading techniques, including various forms of crosshatch shading, charcoal techniques, and shading with colored pencils, are laid out in detail and supplement a variety of compositional ideas. Read through this volume as a comprehensive primer in drawing, or refer to it as needed to answer questions or refine particular skills. A supplemental glossary is included to explain technical terms.
