Abstract:

"This book represents your opportunity to learn from this acknowledged master. Together you'll explore pencil drawing as a serious medium--not just a preliminary step in painting ... Calle begins with a brief history of the development of pencil and its use by past masters. His discussion of types of pencils, paper surfaces, fixatives and erasers sets the stage for a series of demonstrations of variouis picture projects. You'll do trial renderings of key sections of a picture, plan the direction of your strokes, and make corrections. You'll also practice drawing the head, hands, and figure; learn how to handle perspective, compositions, shadows, and textures; and find advice on using photographs and other drawing aids. Above all, you'll learn how to convey through your drawings a sense of purpose and the feeling of movement, emotion, or direction."
