Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book has already helped me to sketch recognisable objects and has given me the courage to try more.


You Can Paint Sketch will give even the most hesitant of beginners the confidence to pick up a pencil or pen and start sketching. Jackie Simmonds starts by explaining how to make different marks using a variety of sketching media. Then, with easy step-by-step exercises she shows how to sketch the separate elements of a picture one by one. You will learn how to sketch simple still life landscapes, flowers and people in a range of media including pencil, charcoal, coloured pencils, pastel pencils, watercolour pencils and conte. Then, with stage-by-stage demonstrations to show you how to combine these features into a single sketc, it won't be long before you can produce sketches to be proud of.
