Drawing: Learning Professional Technique

( 58:42 )

Tony Couch, professional artist, educator, and author, demonstrates the professional drawing techniques he feels are necessary to create a work of art. These include contour drawing, creating a gesture drawing of a figure, and developing one-point and two-point perspective from different views. He also shows you how to use accent line to create interest and to use basic shapes in developing your drawings and to incorporate crosshatching and shading to produce form and dimension. Using these techniques, he then completes three landscape drawings. These include pencil, colored markers, and ink with a bamboo pen over a watercolor wash.
