ISBN 9781844486960 Draw Portraits


Full Description

Portraying the face is one of the most interesting yet probably most difficult tasks for an artist. Numerous factors have to be taken into consideration, as the facial features vary from individual to individual and need to reflect their mood and personality. The book begins with an exploration of what makes a good portrait, including picture construction, composition and light and shade. It then goes on to teach the anatomy of the head, from an artists point of view, with clear explanations and step-by-step exercises for drawing the mouth, eyes, nose, ears and hair. The final sections of the book cover the use of different drawing materials, including pencil, graphite, charcoal, chalk, pastels, coloured pencils and watercolour pencils. This book is an ideal introduction to drawing portraits for artists of all abilities.
