Artist’s Drawing Techniques explains which tools, materials, and methods should be used, allowing you to master more than 80 techniques, from shading to blending to perspective to cross-hatching, as you follow inspirational drawing tutorials.
Perfect for the beginner picking up a new hobby or the experienced artist who wants to expand your horizons with new styles, Artist’s Drawing Techniques is an essential guide for unlocking your creativity.
Just like the sketching book, this book has some amazing explanations, step by step tips and more. So excited to get drawing! A beautiful hardcover book that makes a great coffee table book. I leave the drawing books out on the table for the kids to grab, flip through, and start drawing whenever. Check out my nine-year old’s work below.
