About this book

Draw Flowers: Using Pencils, Pastels, Crayons & Charcoal provides an introduction to drawing flowers using a range of drawing materials, including pencils, colour pencils, graphite, watercolour pencils, pastels, wax crayons and charcoal. For beginners who have never drawn before, there is a detailed introductory section that covers materials, equipment and basic techniques such as how to hold the pencil and hatching and shading, through to composition, perspective, and light and shade.

The next section includes step-by-step projects for 16 different flowers, using a variety of mediums and backgrounds. In this part you will learn how to sharpen your powers of observation; how to capture the beauty of a flower on paper; and how to reproduce its form and detail accurately.
