Drawing a Complete Course: Pencil * Charcoal * Conte * Pastels * Pen * Inkby Jenny Rodwell
Synopses & Reviews
Step by step by step...the method that every great art teacher uses!
It's the only course you'll ever have to take to become a fabulous artist. From choosing a subject and arranging the composition and putting that first stroke down on paper to the final line: whatever your medium and theme, this "drawing course" will teach you how to create pictures you'll proudly display!
Practice on a series of small, manageable exercises-for each, you'll be told exactly what brush to use, whether or not to dilute the paint, and how to fix mistakes. See every subject with a fresh eye and study composition, perspective, measuring, and negative space. Layer by layer, follow the instructions to build the work to completion.
Because the whole world can be inspiration for your images, immerse yourself in a variety of approaches: delicate pastels; full-scale landscapes of forests, sea, or city; intimate portraits that capture a person's personality; or still lifes with their emphasis on shape and form.
You'll feel like a true artist!
Suitable for complete beginners, this practical drawing guide provides all you need to know to draw with confidence and proficiency. The course uses carefully graded, step-by-step exercises designed to enhance developing skills through every stage of composition and through a variety of media.
