Welcome to the definitive guide on the subject of drawing and painting people. Culled from the best instruction available in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and colored pencil, this lush volume contains hundreds of color and black and white illustrations of the most popular subject for artists — people!
Time tested, step by instructions entice the novice to begin drawing and painting, while intermediate artists will find a wealth of knowledge for improving and refining their work. Classic portrait poses as well as landscape settings are covered, along with tips on using reference photos, lighting your subject, and achieving realistic skin tones and hair colors for a variety of ethnic groups, ages, and genders.
Other topics include basic drawing, color theory, heads and faces, full figures, and composition. Also included are 15 complete painting demonstrations.
