Publisher's Description

In this invaluable guide, the human head is carefully studied in every conceivable pose and illumination, from bright light to gentle shade. Dramatic drawings of individuals from a variety of age groups are included, revealing the variations in features and bone structures. Beginning with the essential constructive lines of each drawing, the book highlights methods for perspective, proportion, foreshortening, and proper shading. As the sketch's details are fleshed out, so too are the energy and personality of each subject.
For both beginners and professionals, How to Draw the Head in Light and Shade provides a powerful foundation for building and realistically depicting the head in sketching, portraiture, and painting.
