Using "drawing" and "sketching" synonymously, these two books complement each other nicely. Drawing for Beginners is a straightforward manual on the essentials of pencil and pens, charcoal, pastel, pen and wash, and conte. The usual animals, birds, people, landscapes, and buildings are covered. The strength of the book is its gathering of several contributing artists and the resulting broad variety of styles and techniques. Sketching presumes a certain level of skill and builds from there. Graphite and charcoal sketching are quickly superseded by the sophisticated color and movement available from oil pastel, aquarelle pencils, and watercolor wash. Both are recommended.
