Drawing Magazine, Winter 2016 Table of Contents

The winter 2016 issue of Drawing magazine is here, and it’s all about charcoal. We look at the work of three outstanding contemporary charcoal artists–Mary Borgman, Hilary Brace and April Gornik–and we also learn a bit about the many types of charcoal you can choose from, as well as the history of the medium. (Spoiler alert: the history of charcoal goes back a loooong way.)

Other topics include manageable ways to introduce perspective into your drawing process, how to draw drapery, and highlights from a Texas museum. The full list of articles is below. Click here to order a copy of the magazineclick here to download the issue, or click here to subscribe to Drawing
