An inspiring must-have resource for artists seeking new approaches to drawing the human figure. Throughout the history of art, figure drawing has been regarded as the very foundation of an artist’s education and at the centre of the art-making process. In Expressive Figure Drawing, innovative teacher and author, Bill Buchman, explores the idea that the way we draw is a direct expression of our emotions, perceptions and our sense of ourselves and others. The underlying approach is based on the author’s 20 plus fundamental figure drawing exercises that are undertaken one step at a time so that students and artists of all levels are empowered to make progress with the figure beyond their expectations. Throughout the book, the author reveals his methods for developing proficiency using a variety of traditional media and the latest art materials available today.
