    REFACE


    The purpose of revising Pencil Sketching is to update the content and


    to make it more suitable to the needs of today’s users. 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    most of the examples were in my opinion outdated.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.
