about this item
There is something almost magical about looking at a two-dimensional surface and experiencing a visceral sense of depth and dimension. In this 7th edition of the celebratedStrokes of Genius series, 120 of today's best artists share successful approaches to creating that wondrous illusion of space--from a tight, shallow place that reflects the emotional state of the model, to wide open vistas that seem to go on forever.
Inside you'll find:
- 135 inspirational drawings in charcoal, pencil, pastel, colored pencil, pen and ink, scratchboard and more
- An exciting diversity of styles and techniques, presented in subject-themed chapters: portraits, landscapes, animals, still lifes and figures
- Practical artist-to-artist advice, insights and anecdotes you won't find anywhere else
