Artist, illustrator, and teacher Hugh Laidman shows how simple and rewarding it can be to draw two of the most challenging of artistic subjects — the male and female figures.
A brief review of anatomical structure is followed by detailed illustrations and clear instructions for rendering line, tone, structure, and form in a variety of techniques. Explanatory drawings, practice exercises, and step-by-step photographs are used to discuss sketching, sustained and contour drawing, working with charcoal or pastels, as well as finding and posing models and drawing people of different ages and ethnic groups.
Art students to professionals will find the text's direct terminology and detailed illustrations of immense value.
