All artists want to be able to portray texture effectively without making their paintings and drawings look overworked, and this book shows them how. From the powdery roughness of an old stone wall to the glint of shiny metals or the bloom on the skin of a peach, dozens of realistic textures (and how to achieve them) are demonstrated here with clear step-by-step sequences. Learn how to manipulate any medium from pencil, pen or charcoal, to watercolour, gouache, oils or acrylics to produce your desired textures and patterns.
