The ability to draw the human form accurately and competently is a primary goal for many aspiring artists, despite the current trend in the art establishment away from figurative subjects. The book is intended for anyone who wants to discover every aspect of what for centuries was regarded as the real test of an artist's mettle. Renowned teacher and artist Barrington Barber begins his exploration with anatomy, an understanding which is vital if the artist is to handle form and translate what he sees into a believable representation of life. He goes on to look at the whole figure: clothed, drawn from life, in action and in detail. Supported by sections on composition, styles and a step-by-step guide to a final composition, he has once again achieved a brilliantly inspirational art book. Comprehensive, easy to follow and packed with over 300 of Barrington Barber's illustrations, The Fundamentals of Figure Drawing is a must for artists of all abilities.

When it was originally published in 1970, How to Draw What You See zoomed to the top of Watson-Guptill’s best-seller list—and it has remained there ever since. “I believe that you must be able to draw things as you see them—realistically,” wrote Rudy de Reyna in his introduction. Today, generations of artists have learned to draw what they see, to truly capture the world around them, using de Reyna’s methods. How to Draw What You See shows artists how to recognize the basic shape of an object—cube, cylinder, cone, or sphere—and use that shape to draw the object, no matter how much detail it contains.

In this innovative guide, master art instructor William Maughan demonstrates how to create a realistic human likeness by using the classic and highly accurate modeling technique of chiaroscuro (Italian for “light and dark”) developed by Leonardo da Vinci during the High Renaissance. Maughan first introduces readers to the basics of this centuries-old technique, showing how to analyze form, light, and shadow; use dark pencil, white pencil, and toned paper to create a full range of values; use the elements of design to enhance a likeness; and capture a sitter’s gestures and proportions. He then demonstrates, step by step, how to draw each facial feature, develop visual awareness, and render the head in color with soft pastels.
