Drawing Techniques (How to Paint)by Quentin De La Bedoyere
Synopses & Reviews
Aspiring painters must first know how to draw, and this instruction book focuses on the three basic mediums of the form: pencil, sanguine, and charcoal. Used to richly illustrate all the basic drawing methods—with special attention given to creating light, shade, tone, and detail—the step-by-step photographs clearly explain various techniques, from establishing a composition to creating form. Additional focus is given to the essential principles needed to create surfaces, add texture, and give perspective. All three drawing mediums are given independent attention, allowing new artists to equally develop their skills with pencil, sanguine, and charcoal before venturing into more advanced mediums.
This book is for those who have always wished they could draw, or have tried a little drawing and find they need some basic help.'
