Walter Foster Drawing Made Easy: Lifelike Heads

Learn to draw amazingly realistic portraits in seven simple stages! This book is the perfect guide for creating lifelike representations of the human head in classic graphite.

Experienced artist Lance Richlin begins by explaining the essential drawing tools and materials, shading techniques, and the important anatomical structures of the head. Following these basics, he shows how to light the subject, block in and render each feature of the face, and address a variety of expressions — from subtle smiles to toothy grins.

Richlin then guides the reader through four projects, showing how to develop a lifelike head drawing in seven simple stages — the lay-in, plumb lines, volume, outline, tonal pattern, value, and finishing.

Also included is a detailed troubleshooting section to help readers identify and solve any problems that lessen the realism and accuracy of their drawings. In an age full of technological shortcuts, this book emphasizes drawing from life and seeks to preserve the methods of the Old Masters.

A master of drawing, painting, and sculpture, Lance Richlin has taught every aspect of classical art — from anatomy and perspective to traditional oil painting techniques. He has lectured at several art colleges in southern California, including Art Center College of Design, Otis College of Art and Design, and California Institute of the Arts, and he holds workshops in his atelier. He has shown his work in galleries across California and has exhibited in museums around the USA.
