A good portion of my time in junior high and high school was spent with an obligatory sketchbook in my backpack for a looming art class assignment. Drawing has often intimidated me because, well, it's supposed to look like your subject. There is a realism to pencil drawing that calls for a certain level of technique, an "artist's eye" if you will.
Drawing lessons often focus on tips for weilding the the artist's pencil. Along with great techniques for pencil drawing, artist Kerry Lemon has a lovely perspective on the beauty and power of the eraser. Fearless Drawing hits stores next month, and we're excited to give you a first look here.
"A pencil and a piece of paper are the most basic tools for creating beautiful artwork. Even if you eventually move on to a different medium, you'll find that good fundamental drawing skills are critical."
