The Encyclopedia of Drawing Techniques is a step-by-step visual directory of drawing techniques which provides you with everything you need to fully realise your ambitions.
Detailed photographic sequences explore pencil, charcoal, pen and technical pen techniques, including shading, building up, blending, hatching, highlighting, stippling and more. Coloured pencils, chalks, pastels, and pen and ink are also covered with inspirational pictures across a full range of subject matter, including landscapes, buildings, figures, animals, flowers and still life.
Techniques are discussed in detail in The Encyclopedia of Drawing Techniques, including layering, feathering, burnishing, linear marks and pointillism. The use of paint and brushes is less obvious in a book on drawing, but there are some techniques in which the brush is used to create a line, or to infill a linear shape. These techniques are discussed as well with examples shown throughout to act as inspiration for the practising artist.
Sequences on mixed media, keeping a sketchbook and digital drawing are included too, making The Encyclopedia of Drawing Techniques an invaluable addition to any artists book shelves.
