Sketching for the absolute beginner

Cronin, Peter (Artist)2022
"Starting from a clear, simple method to bring all the senses into play, successful author and acclaimed artist Peter Cronin RSMA shows the reader how to bring artistry and economy to their sketching; making for swift and impressive results. Whether sketching as the basis for painting, or simply for pleasure, this book gives the reader all they need to know. Numerous simple step-by-step demonstrations as well as larger projects lead the complete beginner through the book, building towards more complex and rewarding artworks. Most of the artworks in the book are created using graphite pencil, but the author also shows the reader how to use charcoal and pen and ink to broaden the possibilities; and encourage them to experiment with other media. By the end of the book, the reader will have learnt all you need to know to take your sketching skills further and become an accomplished artist in your own right"-- Provided by publisher.
