Sample text

Like talking, drawing is a physical extension of thought. Ideas and senses move from your brain through your arm to your hand and onto the paper as freely as thoughts move through your mouth. Figuring out how to draw realistically is a matter of gaining control over the innate tendency to simply make marks. To start drawing realistically, you need to be able to do two things: see the world around you and hold a pencil. If you can do those two things, your only obstacle to learning to draw is making a commitment.

In addition to the traditional black-gray media, you can also use colored pencils, colored conté crayons, and pastels to bring color into your drawings (see the later section “Choosing Your Drawing Supplies” for more details on these different drawing media). Every drawing medium has its own range of expressive mark, meaning the texture and degree of softness or hardness of the tool affects whether the marks it makes are clean or messy, smooth or grainy. Additionally, each medium has its own maximum degree of lightness and darkness.

The labeling means the same thing for both charcoal and graphite (see the earlier section “Pencils” for details). Sometimes you may find charcoal that’s labeled only hard, medium, soft, and extra soft. Just purchase a few medium (2B) and soft (4B) charcoal pencils and a couple of soft (4B) compressed charcoal sticks for now. We show you how to test-drive your new charcoal in a fun project in Chapter 13. Spray fixative Spray fixative (also called spray fix) is a protective coating that you apply to your drawing from an aerosol can.
