Valerie Wiffen studies at the Royal College of Art in London under such luminaries as Ruskin Spear and Colin Hayes. On graduation, she won the Drawing Prize and has maintained a professional practice of drawing ever since, leading to many portrait commissions and a career in drawing and painting. Valerie has taught drawing and painting for many years, and also exhibits her work at the New English Art Club, The Royal Academy Summer Show, and other mixed shows. Her previous books include Ways of Drawing Faces and Portraits, Ways of Drawing the Human Figure, and Figure Sketching School.From Library Journal:
Using "drawing" and "sketching" synonymously, these two books complement each other nicely. Drawing for Beginners is a straightforward manual on the essentials of pencil and pens, charcoal, pastel, pen and wash, and conte. The usual animals, birds, people, landscapes, and buildings are covered. The strength of the book is its gathering of several contributing artists and the resulting broad variety of styles and techniques. Sketching presumes a certain level of skill and builds from there. Graphite and charcoal sketching are quickly superseded by the sophisticated color and movement available from oil pastel, aquarelle pencils, and watercolor wash. Both are recommended.
