Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for anyone wanting to experiment or learn how charcoal, chalk, and sanguine crayon is used! Understandable read and instructions are easy to follow. Illustrations to assist one when in doubt as well. Good luck!

This is a superb introduction to chalk and charcoal. It covers a range of media and techniques and illustrates them with simple enough examples that learning by doing is quick, painless, and fun. Some might be disappointed that the art here is not of masterpiece quality, but if you are just starting out in a medium, masterpieces are often simply depressing reminders of how unskilled you are. My only quibble is that the explaining aspect of the book is really limited. Some techniques are merely alluded to in the accompanying art without ever being explained. More than once, learning a particular skill was pure trial and error since the book offered no guidance.

As many fine artists whom I deeply respect have pointed out, basic drawing skills are indeed a necessity for almost all forms of meaningful visual art. I am an amateur oil pastelist and would like to develop these drawing skills further. After a quick overview I find that this little book appears to meet my goals and then some, and I’m starting into a detailed study of it with great anticipation as glorious Spring arrives in Northern Colorado.
