Drawing Masterclass: Creative Techniques of 100 Great Artists
Presents the world’s great artists and discusses how their images were created. Some great suggestions to help students with their own drawings. Chapters on nudes, figures, landscapes, still life and studies, heads, fantasy and abstraction.
Each chapter presents a group of artists and examines their practice in detail. Each artist is described through one work, plus a biographical profile and a practical look at the way the drawing was made: the materials and technique, as well as an examination of the ideas and inspiration behind its making and how the artist’s life might reflect their concerns. Light and shade, rhythm, form, space, contour and composition are all covered in detail.
