Exploring Life Drawing, a book by Harold B. Stone

Exploring Life Drawing introduces the art of drawing the human figure from observation, a skill as relevant for today's new media-driven visual artists as for traditional fine artists. Written by an experienced drawing instructor and accomplished artist, this extensively illustrated book helps the reader build skills and construct an individual drawing style. Each chapter introduces a specific technique, explains its history, and provides clear instruction on how to implement the approach. Exploring Life Drawing also offers detailed, step-by-step demonstrations and specific guidelines for objectively assessing the results. The text is further strengthened by a beautiful art program, containing classic and contemporary images from some of the largest collections in the world- giving readers an opportunity to learn from the masters and to connect with the history and grandeur of the art form.
