Description

Pencil drawing is a fundamental topic in art instruction and a good starting point for any artist, whether a novice or a master. Drawing: Dogs & Puppies teaches artists everything they need to know to achieve realistic pet portraits in graphite pencil. From choosing the right drawing paper and tools to understanding how to blend and shade, Drawing: Dogs & Puppies features valuable information for learning to draw in graphite pencil. Aspiring artists will learn about composition, value, and contrast, as well as how to render various fur textures; expressive eyes; and realistic noses, ears, and mouths. The book opens with an introduction to the basic drawing tools and materials, including pencils, erasers, supports, and blending tools. With simple step-by-step projects that start with basic shapes and progress to detailed, realistic final drawings, readers will learn to draw a variety of interesting canines, including a pug, a labrador retriever, and a great dane. Expert instruction, a breadth of subject matter, helpful tips, and inspirational artwork make Drawing: Dogs & Puppies the perfect addition to any dog-loving artist's library.
