Although the pedagogical intent established 20 years ago remains valid and intact, most of the examples were in my opinion outdated. There are also techniques I learned after over 25 years of teaching and practice that I want to incorporate in the new publication. Since the purpose of this book is to teach pencil sketching, I believe that a new book, with all new writings and illustrations, will serve the purpose well. Sketching with color pencil is intentionally left out because I feel strongly that the basics in learning how to sketch and draw must start with a simple black and white medium. Pencil is very special because the traditional sketching techniques often go way beyond the tool itself and into the mind and body of the artist. To me, this is the only way to learn and to master pencil sketching. Pencil sketching is the door to all other drawing media, and good pencil sketching skills lay the foundation for a good artist. There are many great “technicians” who can draw, but what I really want is to make you an “artist.” I hope this book will continue to be a helpful guide to all future artists. ix
