Overview

Portrait Drawing is a highly illustrated guide to drawing the human face, for all those learning to draw or wishing to improve their skills. John T. Freeman introduces a traditional method of teaching that uses a structured yet natural process of continuous revision based on the principle of working from the general towards the particular. This enables the student to understand not only how to do it but, more importantly, why. Written in the manner of the author's highly praised tutorials, each stage is presented in a practical and informal way, offering detailed, step-by-step guidance in all aspects of drawing the face. John T. Freeman is a professional artist and lecturer; his solo exhibitions include those at Tate Britain and the British Library.
