The Drawing Bible: The Essential Reference For The Practicing Artist

4.4  ·  Rating Details ·  5 Ratings  ·  1 Review
The first implement that springs to mind in the context of drawing is the humble pencil. This is a highly versatile tool, and ideal for quick sketches, but there are many other exciting drawing media, from charcoal, Indian ink, and conte for monochrome work, to vast ranges of coloured pencils, pastels and coloured inks for more painterly effects.
