9781844480722: Drawing the Clothed Figure: Portraits of People in Everyday Life (The Art of Drawing)

Using pencils, charcoal, pastels, pen and ink, watercolours, felt pens and more, Giovanni Civardi teaches how to draw the people around us. He shows how to simplify the human figure, with illustrations and an easy-to-understand section on the importance of anatomy and proportions. Further explanations about tone, shadows and backgrounds give helpful advice on composing drawings with maximum impact. A wide range of techniques are included exploring folds and creases in fabric, dress style, texture, skin tones and perspective. Excellent examples of single figure studies, groups of people and subjects in situations such as the famous square of Montmartre offer lots of inspiration, making this book an invaluable addition to any artist's library.
