Anyone who can put a pen to paper can learn to produce realistic drawings--especially with the help of a skilled artist who knows how to break down the techniques into manageable bites. Using exquisite examples of his own work, Mason Hayek demonstrates an array of drawing skills, including broad-stroke, sharp-pointed-pencil, and detailed pen-and-ink. Develop your own abilities by selecting a simple subject, such as a leaf, and rendering it using contour, modified contour, and gesture drawing. Plenty of guidance is given on every facet of drawing, including equipment and supplies; good composition; choosing the right medium for a subject; capturing a fleeting scene; creating depth and shading, and correcting mistakes. The results will amaze you.
