Master the basic skills, develop your style and expand your creativity with this ultimate guide to core drawing and painting techniques, brought to you by renowned artist, author and teacher, Trudy Friend. Explore the essential techniques that Trudy has developed over the years, from the key line and brush strokes that form the basis of her art to essential advice on observation, composition, lighting and adding colour to your work. Each technique is clearly explained with annotated exercises and step demonstrations. Complete the practical case studies to experiment with a wide range of media, including pencil, charcoal, watercolour, pastels, gouache and acrylic. The book is divided into four distinct parts: Basic Mark-making - many artists, in particular beginners, find it daunting to make the first marks on a fresh piece of paper, but by using eight basic stroke applications, as guided by Trudy, you will find it easier to make a plan first of just how you will proceed, choosing the marks that will fit your purpose, helping you to make a confident start. Developing Your Skills - with the eight basic strokes mastered, you will be ready to move on to experiment with different subjects and media.
