Description


This third book in the popular Do More Art series exposes how the simplest of writing tools is in fact the key to an entire universe of artistic expression. From simple doodling and mark-making to meticulously built-up tour de forces – a piece of graphite is all that is needed to create whole new worlds. Selwyn Leamy and Eve Blackwood explore the many different ways the pencil can be used: from hatching and smudging to frottage and even collage. Each technique is clearly explained and illustrated with works by some of the greatest contemporary pencil practitioners – demonstrating once and for all that the pencil really is mightier than the pen.
