The inspiring lessons continue with a brand new and beautiful addition to the magnificent series on drawing skills. This fourth book--which follows "Art of Drawing," "Art of Drawing Landscapes," and "Art of Drawing the Human Body"--covers all the essential basics for capturing vibrant and expressive still lifes. Breathtaking and enlightening images fill chapters devoted to capturing variations of light and shade; depicting forms, qualities, and textures; and producing a balanced, strong composition. You'll also learn how to realistically render materials such as metal, glass, cloth, and wood. An engaging section of step-by-step projects includes still lifes with abstract shapes; backlit flowers in pencil and India ink; a chiaroscuro of drapes; and a scene with toys, drawn in crayon.
