Mastering Drawing The Human Figure

From Life, Memory, Imagination

Introduction:
Who This Book Is For
 
This book is for all of those who love to draw the human form. It is for those who have never even drawn a line, for those who are students who can draw to a certain degree, and for those professional artists who are proficient in drawing. It is also, of course, for those who teach drawing.
 
Background:
"One can see further sitting on the shoulders of a giant." Old proverb.
 
What is contained in these pages is based mainly on the teachings of Frank J. Reilly who I studied with and knew personally for many years, plus many of my own ideas on the subject of drawing which have evolved from my, at this point, 35 years of teaching at the Art Students League of New York. I have organized this knowledge to the best of my ability with regard to ease of learning and clarity.
 


How To Use This Book:

The beginner should first read this book from beginning to end. This is so you may see how the theories and ideas evolve and where they lead you. The next step is to read the book slowly - this time really trying to comprehend what is presented. The third step is to read the book from beginning to end again, this time making drawings of the diagrams shown. Complete one chapter at a time. Do not go any further until you can draw the basic figure structure diagrams from memory. I want you to build on a firm foundation, mastering one thing pretty much before going on to the next one - an idea incidentally that da Vinci stressed well over 400 years ago.
