Summary
"James McMullan, one of America's most celebrated illustrators, has created an exciting new approach to figure drawing. Using his experience as an artist and a teacher, McMullan lucidly presents his new strategy, High-Focus Drawing, demonstrating his method with examples from master works as well as from student art. High-Focus Drawing is a melding of memory, common sense, heightened awareness of our own bodies, and curiosity to find what is unique in the model." "In contrast to a mechanistic approach, where the artist isolates portions of the body, High-Focus Drawing asks the student to take in the entire figure at once, resulting in a drawing that embodies a strong sense of immediacy and energy. This approach produces lively, seamless figure drawings without construction lines. For students and artists at any level who are interested in exploring the possibilities of figure drawing this book provides both guidance and inspiration."--Jacket
