Portraying Children: Expressions, Proportions, Drawing and Painting Techniques Cover Image


Portraying people is undoubtedly one of the most difficult aspects of drawing. Expressions, movements, emotions and gazes add a series of challenges not present when drawing still lifes or landscapes. In addition, the scant number of books specifically about drawing children leave many of the particularities related to the portrayal of childhood unresolved. This book, now in paperback, fills this void. Using live models, either posing or simply naturally, photographs, videos, drawings of faces, it contains a step-by-step, detailed explanation on how to draw children. Through an introduction to proportions, and by training in observing the changes children experience over the years, the reader learns how to capture both children's physical and psychological transformations. Portraying Children is intended for illustrators and those who love to draw, and anyone else who wants to capture the memorable and fleeting moments associated with childhood.
