This isn’t a dry instruction manual; it’s a contemporary guide filled with instruction, encouragement, and tips. 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.
The Modern Series of books offers a fun, contemporary approach to working with traditional art media, demonstrating that with the right type of instruction, encouragement, and tips, drawing and painting success can be achieved by any artist or creative type.
