Description

This essential book explores the importance of understanding the range of values of a subject, from light to dark and all the variations in between, and demonstrates the drawing techniques that can be used to render realistic forms. The step-by-step projects help artists develop their skills through shading, contrasting elements, studying composition, drawing white objects, using lighting effects, and more.
