Pencil Playbook: Pattern Drawing

Sketching and painting are two of our favorite things to do at Walter Foster. Lately, I've been dedicating myself to pencil practice: making sure I get some sketching time in each day. The pencil is one of the oldest tools in the artist's toolbox, and never before have artists had such an array of pencil styles and colors and mediums available to us.

Umbrellas offer a unique opportunity to play with light and angles. Experiment with blending blues and greens to capture the nuances of these beachside umbrellas. You could crop the trees out to focus exclusively on the umbrellas or you could leave them in for depth.

Seascapes and beaches are easily some of the most photographed and painted subjects in art. It's not surprising, though. The seaside offers so many gorgeous vistas, from the lively birds and wildlife to the varied textures of sand, surf, rocks, seashells, and even dried coral.
