Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The timeless classic on drawing human figures is back! Following impressive runs by Sterling’s previous editions comes a new, redesigned version of George W. Bridgman’s landmark work. It combines six well-known books by the celebrated artist and lecturer, who taught figure and anatomy drawing for many years at New York City’s Art Students League. This edition preserves Bridgman’s lessons and original sketches, but now features a nostalgic, eye-catching cover that distinguishes it from the competition. In its sleek new format, this comprehensive guide will certainly continue its reign as one of the premier figure-drawing publications of all time.

 

Synopsis:

Welcome to your very own Figure Drawing Studio, where artist Butch Krieger guides you through the fundamentals of learning to draw and paint the human form using photographs taken of live art models posing as they would for an art class. Innovative step-by-step exercises based on these images, from the popular Art Models series, will boost your skills and prepare you to draw from life. A companion disk features more than 1,500 high-resolution full-color photos to work with.
