Each portrait teaches young artists something about the way to tackle depicting the features of friends, family members, and acquaintances. Readers learn that each face has an extraordinary ability to show a wide range of expressions and emotions. By changing situations, lighting, and surroundings, they will also discover that there is no limit to the possibilities for expression that drawing portraits offers. A materials checklist is provided, along with valuable guidance in drawing proportions of the head, different ages, features, muscles and bones, details about composition, and production of tones, among other points. Handy Hints are provided throughout the volume to give artists additional helpful tips.
