Product description

Figure drawing life classes are a staple of every art school' curriculum, but not every aspiring artist has the opportunity to benefit from such instruction. This book aims to provide the next best thing to an actual life drawing studio. It contains a compilation of traditional life drawing poses and positions revealing nuances of light, shadow, musculature, detail and definition.
