Lesson 6 - Texture and Pencil Methods

Create various tones and textures using different mark-making pencil techniques.

The previous lessons are the building blocks for any finished drawing. In addition to these building blocks, you must also understand texture and visual depth in drawing. Texture is the visual appearance of the surface of your subject. Visual Depth is determined by changes in tone. The pencil techniques that you learn in this lesson will broaden your drawing skills beyond simple tone and basic form.
