Draw People Every Day: Short Lessons in Portrait and Figure Drawing Using Ink and Watercolor

Overview

While today's illustrators work primarily in ink and watercolor, figure drawing instruction still tends to emphasize work in pencil. Commercial illustrator Kagan McLeod offers an approach to figure and portrait drawing more in keeping with today's preferred tools and techniques, one that focuses on cultivating spontaneity, energy, and confidence by providing exercises for brush work in ink and watercolor. By breaking figure and portrait drawing into the three major aspects of line, tone, and color and recommending time limits for each exercise, McLeod encourages working fast and fearless, rather than worrying about getting your figures just right. Filled with numerous illustrative examples of diverse, modern people, Draw People Every Day reflects practical, applicable techniques to get you drawing the people you see in the world around you with speed and proficiency.
