Synopsis

Synopsis

Discover the Keys to Creating Beautiful Drawings with Master Artists
 
Between these pages, artists of all backgrounds will find anything and everything they need to know about drawing. With thorough explanations of materials and their composition, step-by-step demonstrations, and practical advice for creating compositions, The Big Book of Drawing is a comprehensive authority on the medium that is the foundation of all other visual arts.

Learn how to handle charcoal, pastel, pencil, and an array of inks; master various shading techniques, including cross-hatching and chiaroscuro; and discover the secrets to constructing attractive and unique compositions. Aspiring artists will learn from the best, with a plentiful array of work by old masters, such as Van Dyke, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, and others.

This combination of a detailed instruction book and folio of masterpiece art inspires and informs artists in a way that no other drawing book does.
