Overview


Aimed at artists, art historians, and everyone interested in portraiture, this technique is examined through a series of projects
 

The sight-size portrait method, in which the artist stands back at a distance to view the picture and sitter side by side and to scale, is examined in this practical book. Painter Nicholas Beer demonstrates the technique in a series of projects that culminate in portrait painting. He also includes sections on the history of sight-size, early treatises on portraiture, and the "philosophy" of seeing.
