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.
