The art of drawing translates between two languages: the language of the eye and the language of line and shading, color and tone. Through the choices the artist makes, a drawing both depicts its subject and makes a statement about it.
Building upon these ideas, award-winning instructional author John Raynes offers a course that begins by showing how to render everyday objects such as a chair or a vase, and advances in easy steps to the creation of expressive landscapes, portraits, and figure studies.
With exercises for exploring shape and volume, perspective and composition, and light and texture, Raynes leads the reader on a journey of discovery in a wide range of media from pencil, charcoal, and pastel to watercolor pencil and ink.
