Collins Life Drawing Class by Lucy Watson
This is a practical guide to drawing and painting one of the most popular subjects in art - the human figure. Full of information and instruction, the book should prove useful for both the beginner and the more advanced artist. The book combines a wealth of information with step-by-step instruction from professional artists, in an approach that readers should find exciting, enjoyable and, above all, successful. Section one introduces the reader to the basic elements of life drawing, offering advice on: drawing and painting equipment; the basic structure and proportions of the body; constructing the figure from simple shapes; capturing movement; drawing a figure in perspective and working with tone, light and colour; focusing on detail. Section two builds on what the reader has already learnt, encouraging them to develop a unique style of their own.
