Heralded as a revolutionary right-brain approach to figure drawing, this guide focuses on mentality rather than technique. Ted Seth Jacobs offers personal reflections and advice on developing the ability to draw what the eye sees rather than what the mind dictates. More than 180 black-and-white drawings and eight pages of color illustrations reinforce his insights into such concepts as light, balance, and symmetry.
Jacobs' mental approaches include drawing as a philosophical expression, encouraging the mind and body to work together, and cultivating a relaxed but attentive mood. His observations on figure drawing range from the portrayal of forms in action and at rest to draped effects; and he explores the nature of shadow, reflected light, and other light-related issues. Above all, he encourages readers to challenge all assumptions about drawing and painting. A valuable teaching tool for students, this volume is also an excellent reference for professionals and amateurs.
