An Artist's Step-by-step Guide to Techniques and MaterialsBook - 2002
For hundreds of years, artists have studied the underlying structure of the human body in order to draw or paint figures accurately. The instant-start approach of this series is so simple that the reader can begin work immediately on original projects. The book gives a grounding in anatomy, covering the key areas from the artist's viewpoint. Starting with an introduction to the history of the study of anatomy for art, the book then provides a list of materials and equipment that are used in anatomical drawing and painting. The next chapter explains the basic structures of the human body and how the underlying parts go to create the superficial human appearance. There are then eight projects through which to practise anatomical knowledge. The book provides a sound basis for expanding skills and teaches how to produce an anatomically accurate finished piece.
