As a fundamental topic in art instruction, drawing still lifes appeals to beginning and intermediate artists alike. In Drawing Still Lifes, beginningartists will learn everything they need to know for achieving realistic still lifes in pencil, and intermediate artists will have an opportunity to brush up on key pencil-drawing skills.
