Artist's Drawing Techniques

Published August 2017: I was commissioned by DK Books (you might know them as Dorling Kindersley) 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. Published in the UK, the USA and France, and available from the usual retailers. https://www.dk.com/uk/9781465461742-artists-drawing-techniques/
