Drawing, the brand-new title in Barron's growing Creative Techniques series, presents instruction to serious art students and experienced amateurs who want to expand and improve their personal repertory of techniques.Drawing presents 14 radically different, highly individual approaches to the art of drawing figures, landscapes, and even abstract images. Examples are rendered in both monochrome and color media--charcoal, India ink, colored inks, crayons, and pastel chalks. Illustrations that show divergent styles and techniques are by well-known artists, ranging from the impressionist Edgar Degas and twentieth-century master Pablo Picasso, to pop artist Robert Rauschenberg and abstract expressionist Cy Twombly. These and other examples are analyzed and followed up with instruction that will guide students toward achieving the demonstrated effects. As students master different and original approaches to drawing, they are inspired to develop their own imaginative modes of personal expression. The book's introductory section lists and explains the various drawing tools and other equipment that they will need.
