Drawing People How to Portray the Clothed Figure


by Barbara Bradley

A complete course in drawing, Drawing People focuses on the clothed person as opposed to the nude figure. The first part of the book discusses the necessary parts of any drawing-proportion, perspective and value.

Part two deals with drawing folds and drapery. Author Barbara Bradley shows readers how they can use folds in their drawings, how they're constructed, and how to draw them on people. She also includes how to drawing different clothing on people-discussing types of fabrics and how they fold.

The final section of the book includes all the tips readers need to complete their figures, including drawing heads and hands accurately and special instructions for drawing children.
