Portraits and the Human Figure by David Antram


Portraits and the Human Figure by David Antram

The Draw series takes a highly visual and practical approach to drawing, featuring step-by-step instructions for each art project. Duotone lines highlight each step. Each title includes information on the drawing materials you can use and where to use them most effectively. Pencil, pen, crayon, paints, charcoal and more are all covered in detail. The series covers a comprehensive range of essential techniques - with sections on materials, composition and perspective. Draw Portraits and the Human Figure is an excellent way to introduce the concepts of drawing each person's unique facial features and figure, as well as tips on drawing accessories such as spectacles and hats.
