Sketching People : An Urban Sketcher's Manual to Drawing Figures and Faces Paperback


Drawing people out in the world is exciting; there is an immediacy and honesty to the art you create, and each sketch contains a host of memories, not just of the individuals captured on the paper, but of the place and the moment in time that the sketch occupied.

But it can also be a challenge: how do you spot people who are likely to stay still for you and how do you drawmovement, for those occasions when they don't!

This book provides straight-forward, practical help to give beginner sketchers the confidence and ability to draw all sorts of people in a variety of situations.

With detailed advice on how to put together an Urban Sketching toolkit and the best media to choose for particular situations, it will teach you new ways of looking at your subject, and different techniques to help you draw more quickly and explore new styles.

Clearly written and fun to read, this book is bursting with inspirational artwork and candid advice, which will improve your drawing skills and change the way you sketch forever.
