From achieving those first professional strokes to mastering composition, lighting, and color, to finishing beautiful still lifes, portraits, and landscapes, this volume covers every skill a developing artist needs.
Inspiring and instructive images vividly reveal the intricacies of techniques such as shading, tone, contrasts, stumping, contouring, depth effects, and more. Guided drawings include a charcoal of a nude, landscape on gray tone paper, and still life with chiaroscuro.
