Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's the most complete life drawing course ever! Beautifully depict the human form on paper, progressing from quick pose sketches to something more ambitious that says something about the person you're drawing. Gain confidence in a range of exciting techniques using different media, and master anatomy--as important to an artist as notes and scales are to a musician. If you know the body's structure, you'll portray a figure convincingly from a model or without one. Accuracy becomes less important as you respond with hand and eye to what you see, drawing rapidly without inhibition. Give your figures life...by exploiting the effects of light and shadow to build up 3-D images. Then move beyond sketching by putting a figure in a specific context, placing it in a composition. Bonus: See how existing drawings can be "recycled" and transformed by such techniques as monoprinting, so they become works of art in their own right.

Synopsis:

“Lively and accessible...progressing nicely from quick-pose sketches to more ambitious interpretations of both the character and the form of the person one is drawing...covers a variety of media and explores light and shadow, clothing and drapery....[Constances] use of cropping, pastels, collage, and monotypes attests to her preference for creative expressions....an outstanding book for public libraries.”—Library Journal.
