Everything around you is a subject for drawing--a potted plant, a sneaker, a beach, a bowl of vegetables, people. Almost as varied as what you can draw is the way you can draw. No two artists approach their work in the same way, and there are many different techniques and materials that you can use. Before experimenting with different materials, examine the fundamental principles of drawing, including outline and contour, shading and texture, planes and proportions, mass and volume, and perspective. As you progress through these exercises and examples, you will work with a variety of drawing media and find out about the marks and effects that can be achieved with charcoal and chalk, color sticks, pens, brush and ink, pastels, pencils and graphite, colored pencils, and markers.
