Artists, whatever their skill levels, will love this easy approach to what is normally regarded as a challenging subject. An instructional introduction to drawing people, the book completely demystifies the whole process, showing how to build up great pictures using simple shapes and step-by-step illustrations. Words are not needed, as artists will be able to follow the sequences without any difficulty. Two colours are used effectively in a helpful way in each of the sequences and the superb collection of twenty eight drawings offers a range of different ages, ethnicities and poses. People at home, at work and at play are included, and using the building blocks in this book, beginners will soon find themselves producing fantastic finished drawings. More experienced artists interested in drawing figures will also find inspiration amongst the demonstrations on every page.
