The Artist's Complete Guide to Drawing the Head

by Watson-Guptill


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. Paperback book measures 8 1/4 in. x 11 in., 160 pages, 200 color illustrations. Watson-Guptill, 2004. ISBN 0823003590
