The humble pencil is the world’s most flexible and forgiving drawing material. And in Pencil Art Workshop artist and educator Matt Rota (author of The Art of Ballpoint) explores the pencil’s phenomenal range. Turn to any chapter–drawing with line, drawing with tone, drawing quickly, photorealism, adding color–and you’ll discover, through step-by-step instructions and illustrations, how to choose the right pencil and use it to its fullest in every drawing style. Each chapter also includes a gallery of edgy and inspiring works by contemporary pencil artists to enjoy, and to give inspiration. These pencil drawings are the most beautiful drawings that I have ever seen, they look just like a photo, they are gorgeous.
