Mastering Drawing The Human Figure
From Life, Memory, Imagination
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.
"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.
