Master the art of light and shadow, and create beautiful works of art in graphite pencil.

Discover the basic tools and techniques necessary for creating realistic, expressive drawings in graphite pencil. Learn to "see" a subject through the eyes of an artist, first understanding the basics of perspective and proportion, and then observing the play of light and shadow, adding further depth to your drawings using value, contrast, and shading.
