Practical, classroom-tested instruction is at the core of this new introduction to basic drawing skills, written by one of the country's leading illustrators- a teacher admired as much for her ability to inspire students as for her artistic talent. Centered on the art of drawing still-life objects with charcoal, Exploring The Basics of Drawing presents a logical, step-by-step approach that not only gets results but also inspires readers to learn and excel. Thorough coverage of the fundamental skills needed to learn to draw includes still-life drawing, basic shapes, and the key concepts of perspective, light, value, and space. At the heart of the book are drawing projects that show step-by-step progress toward a finished drawing, giving readers the practice they need to build their skills and their confidence.
