The newest title in this series for self-teaching or art class instruction analyzes every aspect of drawing and painting the human head. Explaining methods for achieving correct proportions and proper placement of eyes, nose, mouth, and ears on the human head, the book also instructs on ways to render full-face, three-quarter face, and profile portraits. Informative illustrations point out features that distinguish the faces of children, adults and the aged, as well as differences marking masculine versus feminine features. Using both photos and examples of great portrait art by famous painters, the authors instruct on effective ways to instill life and a variety of expressions into the human face. Hundreds of illustrations, mostly in color.
