How to Draw from Photographs

Picture-perfect drawings are a snap with the help of How to Draw from Photographs from Walter Foster's Artist's Library Series!

Photographs are valuable reference tools that many artists employ instead of tangible subjects when drawing involves variables such as weather, movement, and lighting. Complex subjects such as children and animals are also easier to draw from photos since they rarely sit still when you want them to, making it much easier to draw them from photographs.

However, many beginning artists aren't confident in their picture-taking abilities, or they don't know how to translate their photos into drawings. That's where this innovative book comes in. In no time, beginning artists can learn to draw animals, people, landscapes, and still lifes that look so real you can almost reach out and touch them.

Diane Cardaci was classically trained at the Art Students League of New York City, Parsons School of Design, and the School of Visual Arts. Her work has been published by the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, as well as by major textbook companies such as Holt, Rinehart, and Winston.

Cardaci was also the director of her own art school, the Academy of Classical Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, for four years. She lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and spends her summers in Umbria, located in central Italy, where she furthers her studies of the Old Masters.
