Full Description

In figurative art, sketching the clothed figure requires a detailed study of the folds of the garment and the way in which fabrics sit in relation to the movement of the human body. In this book, Giovanni Civardi shares his expert advice on how to draw clothing on human figures exploring lighting, perspective and the composition of fabric on the human body. Train yourself to see not just the body, but what surrounds it by using the techniques of chiaroscuro and by observing the tonal characteristics of the fabric texture. This inspirational and easy-to-follow guide will suit beginners as well as more expert artists providing a comprehensive overview of the techniques including advice and suggestions for the practical aspects of drawing from life. Contents: 1 X 64 Page Paperback Author: Giovanni Civardi Author Bio - GIOVANNI CIVARDI was born in Milan in 1947. While training to become a sculptor, portrait artist and illustrator at the Free Life-Study School of the Accademia di Brera, he also studied medicine and surgery. For over a decade, he worked as an illustrator, producing commissions for newspapers, magazines and book covers. During frequent trips to France and Denmark, Civardi put on one-man exhibitions of this work and pursued his interest in studying the relationship between medical anatomy and the human form as depicted by the artist. His experience gained from teaching anatomy, life drawing and portraiture in schools and institutions over many years has led to the publication of numerous books in which Civardi's experiences are brought into focus.
