The human face is one of the most challenging subjects to draw—and one of the most rewarding to achieve successfully. Here you’ll learn not only about the basic tools and materials required, but also techniques for shading, stumping, adding highlights, and lighting a model. In-depth coverage is included for basic anatomy and general proportions, with special attention to each facial feature—ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. You’ll also find tips for drawing realistic hair and things to consider when drawing facial expressions. Armed with the valuable information in this chapter, you’ll be ready to dive in to the art of drawing and painting portraits!

Meet the Author

Timothy Chambers believes that painting isnÆt something one chooses so much as something one is compelled to do. After being trained as a young child by his father, distinguished artist William T. Chambers, Tim spent more than 10 years in apprenticeships with other great artists, including Richard Lack, Henry Hensche, and Cedric B. Egeli. Tim continues the Chambers family tradition by teaching his own children to paint. He also teaches students in workshops across the US and in Central America. He resides in beautiful rural Virginia with his stupendously beautiful wife and children. Tim echoes artist Charles HawthorneÆs advice when it comes to painting: "Have enthusiasm--it helps your work if you have a good time."
