Synopsis

For all levels of artist, from novices to experienced professionals, capturing a likeness in paint presents both a never-ending source of inspiration and a constant challenge. In this book, John Raynes offers clear and concise practical advice to help you overcome any reservations and approach portraits with confidence. Throughout the book finished paintings, simple diagrams and easy-to-follow practice exercises are all illustrated in a wide range of popular media. Whether your aim is to make accurate sketches of yourself or your family and friends, Drawing and Painting People is the ideal guide to starting off and improving your skills.

John Raynes is an established artist, teacher and author. He has published ten successful instructional books on drawing and painting, including Figure Drawing and Anatomy for the Artists, now a standard reference work on many practical art courses. His most recent book, The Figure Drawing Workbook (Collins & Brown), won the Art Instruction Book of the Year award from Artist's Choice Magazine in 1997.
