Über diesen Titel
If the artists in this book have one thing in common, it is their ability to capture the elusive human spirit with their respective mediums - oil, watercolor, pastel, colored pencil, gouache and acrylic. By their example, you'll discover ways to: convey personality with expression or attitude, enhance your subject with color, communicate a certain mood or emotion, portray meaning with symbolism, use light to define your subject, describe your subject with a pose or gesture, tell a story with setting or props, and "set the stage" with design and composition. You'll also get insight on using photos, working from life, composing a multiple subject portrait and more.From Library Journal:
Wolf, a prolific editor of art instruction books, may be a bit too prolific. This volume amasses more than 120 portraits from 96 artists, working in all media. With only a paragraph of text for each portrait, there is no depth to the material. Its value is limited to that of a portfolio of visual styles. Wolf did the same thing, with no better effect, in The Best of Wildlife Art (LJ 7/97). Roberta Carter Clark covered portraits in several media more successfully in her How To Paint Living Portraits (North Light, 1990).
