Exploring Black and White: Drawing and Painting Techniques by Victor Escandell

This new publication by Victor Escandell is devoted exclusively to the infinite creative possibilities of drawing and painting in black and white. Traditional and current, materials, techniques and applications are described clearly so that readers can experiment with what they have learned and develop their creativity with a variety of materials. This richly illustrated new book by Victor Escandell is devoted exclusively to the infinite creative possibilities of drawing and painting in black and white. Traditional and current materials, techniques and applications (Indian ink, pencil, pen, bamboo, water-soluble graphite, different types of felt-tip pens for various supports, grattage) are described clearly so that readers can experiment with what they have learned and develop their creativity with a range of materials. Each chapter deals with a specific technique and contains useful information such as methods used, types of material and illustrated examples, including interesting anecdotes about the origin of the technique, tricks of the trade and references to other classic and contemporary authors. Everything is illustrated with photographs of the final result and images of the process to make sure readers don't get lost along the way. Different black-and-white mixed techniques are also presented in a specific chapter while the last chapter examines applications beyond paper (textiles, glass, vinyl). Victor Escandell is also comfortable working with gouache, ink, charcoal, pen and pencil. In his hands, these tools take on a new dimension while everyday products such as salt, bleach and even a hair dryer become essential companions on this adventure. With this book, the apparently simple and limited combination of black and white acquires a new level of expressiveness and drama. AUTHOR: Renowned illustrator Victor Escandell was born in Ibiza and graduated in Graphic Design from the prestigious Massana School of Barcelona. He has worked for companies such as MacCann-Erickson, TBWA, Bassat & Ogilvy and most of the Spanish national newspapers. In 2007 his work was selected for the exhibition of Catalan illustrators at the Frankfurt Book Fair. He is the author of The Resourceful Artist. Exploring Mixed Media and Collage Techniques, A Wonderful World of Animals, Dinosaurs and Sweet Monsters of the World, all published by Promopress. 100 b/w illustrations
