Once again Barrington Barber has produced a wonderfully instructive book to add to his output. Fully illustrated on each page to help illuminate the point being made, Barrington's own original sketches and drawings inspire the reader to strive to reach the same level of excellence in draughtsmanship and technical know-how. He includes examples of figure drawing and representation from around the world and examines the approach of other artists. He explains how to make the most of life classes and how to handle crowd scenes, energy and compositions. Comprehensive, easy to follow and packed with over 300 illustrations, this is a must for artists of all abilities.
After training as a graphic designer, Barrington Barber went into advertising, working for top agencies before progressing to freelance design and producing illustrations for a range of books and magazines. He enjoys a successful career as a commercial illustrator and fine artist and has written and illustrated a wide range of best-selling instructive art books.
