We are so excited about Walter Foster's new series, Academy of Art, coming out in November! The first title in the series—The Fundamentals of Drawing—is truly a comprehensive drawing course for the beginning artist.
Photographs can be beautiful inspiration for pencil drawings. An artist can choose to render the exact image or change the subject composition as needed. Pencil Drawing Step by Step by Cynthia Knox offers lessons for mastering the art of drawing in graphite pencil.
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.
