How to Draw Water in Pencil About Diane Wright In 2002, I picked up my art pencil again after 20+ years. During this break, I devoted my time to my family and building a career.

Shading Techniques With Pencil Once you have mastered the basic pencil drawing techniques from the last tutorial, these can then be used to create different shading techniques within pencil drawings. This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating different shades and a shading guide in which you will be able to refer to throughout this tutorial.
