Publisher Comments:

The bestselling classic updated and revised for a new generation

Portable, inexpensive, extremely versatile, and deceptively simple in design, the pencil, in the trained hand, gives rise to a veritably limitless array of strokes, contours, tones, and textures. For a quarter century, artists, architects, designers, and dabblers in the graphic arts have turned to Thomas Wang' s bestselling classic (100,000 copies sold) for their basic training in the art and science of pencil sketching. That' s because no other book covers so thoroughly, or with such clarity, economy, and grace the full spectrum of rudimentary and advanced pencil sketching techniques, from the basics of how to hold a pencil to the elements of composition, texture, line weight, and shading. Featuring nearly all new illustrations, and a valuable new chapter on sketching from memory. Pencil Sketching, Second Edition is sure to be the guide of choice for the next several generations of professionals and students.

Thomas Wang, MLA, ASLA (Lincoln, MA), is principal of Wang Associates International, a consulting firm specializing in landscape architecture and urban planning and design. He has taught at the University of Michigan and Harvard Graduate School of Design.
