The Human Form: Techniques for Drawing and Painting the Nude

Giovanni Civardi

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

The representation of the human form is one of the most widespread and enduring art subjects in the world. Now, following a long period spent in the shadows of the 20th century's trend towards abstraction, the nude is re-emerging into the mainstream.

The first part of this book contains practical information and advice on the many drawing and painting techniques that are employed when painting the nude.

The second part looks closely at the practicalities of rendering the colours of the skin and advises on colour mixes. Part three goes into further detail, breaking down several approaches to painting or drawing the nude into working stages.

The final and largest section of the book contains a gallery of female and male life drawings, each accompanied by a short commentary in which anatomical and morphological points of interest to the artist are discussed.
