  • Drawing Realistic Textures in Pencil
    by J. D. Hillberry
    ISBN: 0891348689
    Rediscover the beauty of pencil ... the joy of getting back to the basics.

    On a recent trip to Chicago, I visited an artist-friend's studio. The walls were covered with large, marvelous paintings-in-progress, shouting with vivid colors. But off in one corner, mounted in a deep shadowbox so you had to stand close and look carefully to see it, was a small pencil drawing. And I did look carefully and long.

    This book by J.D. Hillberry raises the same wonderment I felt then: What is it about pencil drawings that makes them so innately appealing? Is it the humbleness of the medium? The faint sense of nostalgia? The purity of line and value? Whatever it is, J.D.'s remarkable drawings make the most of it.

    This book will open your eyes to the exciting textural possibilities of the medium. You won't believe the incredible drawings you can create using pencil and the special techniques illustrated in this book ... techniques so easy that anyone--from doodler to advanced artist--can begin exploring immediately!
