Artist's Drawing Techniques

Artist's Drawing Techniques

Published August 2017 in the UK, the USA and France: I was commissioned by DK Books to write and illustrate the pen and ink chapter (apart from pp 152 - 153) for this 300-page hardback book. I created 14 beginner, intermediate and advanced mini-workshops, illustrating techniques from mark-making with a dip pen, to scribbling, stippling and layering coloured inks, each with step by step instructions. I also created three showcase drawings that incorporate all of the techniques in the chapter. But I am just one of a number of contributors, and with chapters on drawing with graphite, charcoal, coloured pencil and pastel, this book has something for just about everyone.
