I’m going to toot my own horn today and announce that my book is finally on the Walter Foster site! It’s been a whole year since I wrote it and the long wait to see it published has been … well … long! My husband and I are driving into the largest city near here (South Bend, Indiana) to see if we can find it in the bookstores.
The official title is:
Drawing Made Easy: Getting Started: Discover your inner artist as you explore the basic theories and techniques of pencil drawing
This book is intended for beginning graphite (pencil) artists. Graphite pencil is a simple drawing medium that can be used to create beautiful artwork, and in this book I show readers how to do this with simple steps and clear instruction. I begin the book by describing the basic tools needed to complete a drawing and how to use them. I explore topics such as texture, using the computer as a drawing aid, and adding detail to a subject. Then I provide five step-by-step demonstrations, guiding readers from initial sketches to polished works of art.
