From graphite pencils and charcoals to soft pastels and crayons, the art of drawing encompasses a variety of mediums and techniques, all of which are included in this comprehensive book. The first part of the book explains materials and equipments and describes the most popular drawing techniques through a series of short practice exercises. The second part has over 25 easy-to-follow projects. From a simple study of a grandmother and child to a modern city skyline there is something here for everybody. A series of 'quick sketch' projects are also included to show you how you might approach subjects in 5-, 15- and 30-minute drawings.
