A contemporary drawing guide filled with instruction, encouragement, and tips.
The Modern series from Walter Foster Publishing offers a fun, fresh approach to working with traditional art media. This isn't a dry instruction manual; it's a contemporary guide filled with instruction, encouragement, and tips. Modern Drawing shows artists, illustrators, art students, and art hobbyists how to use basic drawing principles and techniques to create fresh, expressive pieces of art. You'll enjoy a dynamic, easy-to-follow exploration of drawing mediums and tools as you work through creative exercises and projects. Aspiring pencil artists and illustrators will also learn how to “see” a subject and render a personal yet modern interpretation of their observations on paper. From expressive architecture and landscapes to nature motifs, animals, and people, Modern Drawing provides a fresh, contemporary, and enjoyable approach to learning how to draw.
