Richard Box explores drawing line, tone and colour with numerous step-by-step illustrations and finished drawings. He covers drawing media such as graphite, Pierre Noire, carbon, white, sanguine, sepia and coloured pencils, pastels, conte crayons and charcoal. There is plenty of information on making marks, tonal values, texture and composition, and there are step by step demonstrations in graphite pencil, charcoal and chalk, coloured pencils and pastels and Conte crayons.
Richard Box is a practising artist and professional embroiderer. He studied painting at Goldsmiths School of Art in London. Soon afterwards he developed a love of textiles, which led him to experiment with machine embroidery and fabric collage. He spends his time teaching and lecturing on both of his two areas of expertise. He has written a number of books on art instruction and embroidery, he has appeared on television and he writes regularly for specialist magazines.
