9781782210795: Clothed Figures (Drawing Masterclass)

Ideal for those looking to develop a realistic drawing style, Lucy Swinburne demystifies the subject of drawing clothed figures through use of dozens of inspirational examples in a variety of drawing media. Step-by-step projects walk the reader through interesting and varied subjects, from all walks of life – from ballerinas to buskers.

Drawing people can be intimidating — unlike other subjects, even the tiniest error can give a staged or forced result. This book explains how to get your clothed figures looking alive, dynamic and characterful; and produce successful, dynamic results.

Lucy Swinburne is the author of the popular book on animals in this series.

About the Author:

Lucy Swinburne trained as a Graphic Designer and was selected as a finalist in the Daily Mail's first 'Not the Turner Prize' competition in 2003. She subsequently exhibited at the Mall Galleries. Lucy writes articles for the Leisure Painter magazine and also teaches, holding regular workshops for artists, where she tutors students in pastel techniques. Lucy also provides individual tuition, demonstrates for art groups and runs a private class in Hertfordshire.

Review:

This series has gone a bit quiet lately, which is no bad thing. I don't mean there's anything wrong with it, just that it's something that should only be added to when the right subject and author come along. And this new volume ticks all the boxes. Lucy Swinburne's sensitive pencil drawings capture personality perfectly and her modelling is also right up to standard. Perspective, especially in complex poses, is very easy to get wrong, but Lucy never misses a beat on this one. She's also excellent on form, expression, character and the difficult subject of suggesting movement in what will always be a still-frame drawing. The book is nicely progressive and features a good variety of subjects from young to old, male and female and different ethnicities. The instructional approach is to explain what you're looking for under a particular heading and then to give examples with deconstructed captions that explain what was done. Demonstrations are not completely absent, but neither do they dominate in a book that's aimed at the more experienced practitioner. This is important as both the subject and the readers are taken seriously - if you're looking for an introduction to figure drawing, you shouldn't be surprised to find that this isn't it. Neither, though, is it so rarefied that it becomes inaccessible to anyone except those who don't need it. This is an excellent series whose standard has been kept up by judicious additions and this one enhances it considerably. * Artbookreview.net *
