This is a project-based handbook for the beginner on the different techniques involved in drawing. It includes 13 projects for you to try: using soft pencils to draw a vegetable basket; elephants on safari, drawn with erasers; beached boats, an exercise on cross-hatching; and using conte crayons to produce a baker's selection. It is a practical, easy-to-follow text with over 175 photographs clearly showing the development of each picture. Techniques covered include blending, line and wash, pastel pencils, charcoal and chalk, frottage and graphite sticks; with expert advice on choosing materials, such as pencils, charcoal, and pen and ink; plus paper and accessories. Building on these simple projects will give you confidence to create your own compositions with ease. This is the perfect introduction to drawing for anyone who enjoys creative crafts, whether for personal pleasure or professional reasons. Start by using soft pencils - a drawing tool you're already familiar with from writing. Then move on to drawing with conte crayons, charcoal, and graphite sticks, trying a variety of media to find the one that suits you the best.
