This superbly illustrated guidebook by a distinguished British painter and art educator leads you step by step through the special challenges and pleasures of pencil drawings, a process Michael Woods calls "a sequence of discovery and considerable visual reward." Early chapters cover such essentials as choosing the right pencils and papers, drawing convincing images and dealing confidently with linework, shading, solids, and tone.
The book then progresses to perspective picture composition, the special touches required in portraying people and the presentation techniques of fixing, mounting, and framing. The author's commentaries are filled with many helpful insights into the art of pencil drawing, supplemented by over 150 illustrations specially chosen to demonstrate the points in the text.
Whether you're just beginning to draw or wish to brush up on previously acquired skills, Pencil Drawing offers a wealth of practical guidance and easy-to-follow lessons that will help any student master the art of drawing.
