About this title

Synopsis:

The second book in the Walter Foster Collectibles series, How to Draw & Paint Pin-ups & Glamour Girls, hails back to an era when Betty Grable set the standard for female beauty and Bettie Page set the standard for female allure. This extraordinary collection includes original art from several previously published vintage Walter Foster titles, including How to Draw the Figure, Pin-Up Art, the Nude, Oil: Faces & Features, and Dancers in Action. From the quintessential 1920s flapper girl to a pin-up bikini model, artists will learn to draw and paint a range of female subjects and portraits in a variety of media, including pencil, oil, and pastel. With easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and professional tips, this collectible book is a must-have for artists of all levels, particularly those fond of days gone by.

About the Author:

Walter T. Foster was born in Woodland Park, Colorado, in 1891. In his younger years, he worked as a sign painter and a hog medicine salesman. He also performed in a singing and vaudeville act. Walter invented the first postage-stamp vending machine and drew political caricatures for several large newspapers. He's well known as an accomplished artist, art instructor, and art collector. In the 1920s, while running his own advertising agency and instructing young artists, Walter began writing self-help art instruction books. The books were first produced in his home in Laguna Beach, California, where he wrote, illustrated, and printed them himself. In the 1960s, as the product line grew, he moved the operation to a commercial facility, which allowed him to expand the company and achieve worldwide distribution. Walter passed away in 1981, but he is fondly remembered for his warmth, dedication, and unique instruction books.Born in Oklahoma and raised in Boston, Fritz Willis studied art at Noble and Greenough Preparatory School and later attended Vesper-George Art Academy. During his career, Fritz won many awards for his artistic accomplishments. During the last years of his life, he taught art classes. Born in 1910 on an Oklahoma farm, Earl MacPherson studied art at the Chouinard School of Art in Los Angeles after graduating high school. In 1941, MacPherson painted a pin-up illustration for the Shaw-Barton Calendar Company, which marked his entrance into the lucrative field of pin-up art. His book Pin Up Art: How to Draw and Paint Beautiful Girls was published by Walter Foster in 1954. MacPherson passed away in 1993. Claretta White studied theater and dancing, and thus enjoyed rendering the pageantry of dance, its colorful costumes, motion, and action on canvas.More than 85 years ago, Walter Foster--a well-known artist, instructor, and collector--began producing art instruction books from his home in Laguna Beach, CA. He originally wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped, and distributed them himself. Although Walter passed away in 1981 at the age of 90, his legacy continues in a growing product line.
