How to Paint Living Portraits

Since its original publication, this best-selling book has earned a loyal following among students of portraiture. Back in print by popular demand, How to Paint Living Portraits has been updated to help today's artists discover the joys of this time-honored tradition.

Using a practical, hands-on approach, master artist Roberta Carter Clark shares her secrets to creating successful portraits in charcoal, oils, and watercolors. Five step-by-step portrait demonstrations and 23 exercises help you master the following skills:

  • Creating recognizable likenesses, feature by feature, of subjects reflecting a range of ages and ethnicities
  • Painting the figure, hands, and clothing
  • Overcoming common stumbling blocks in representing skin tone and hair color
  • Creating simple and complex lighting setups to achieve multiple moods and effects

Clark brings 50 years of experience to this book, from technical expertise on color and composition to the practical considerations of working with a live model.

One of the most comprehensive guides ever written on the subject, How to Paint Living Portraits is a valuable reference for artists working at any skill level.
