Achieving a likeness in portrait requires close coordination of the hand and eye; Douglas Graves, a professional portraitist, has developed this basic premise into a functional technique. He describes portraiture as an evolving process: observing the basic surface shapes, discovering how these features deviate from the symmetrical ideal, envisioning the underlying human anatomy, interpreting the sitter’s personality, then conveying all this with a direct medium in a tonal drawing.

  • great transaction, book was as described.

  • Not to disparage the book or author, as I recall, the instruction and demonstrations are for oils or acrylics. I paint with watercolor which requires completely different technique so I didn't find it particularly helpful for me. Because of this, I didn't study it very closely. If you are interested in learning watercolor portrait painting, I'm not sure this is the book for you.

  • This book is a must for oil painting portraits. I got it out of my library, renewed it three times (the limit) and have now decided that this is a must for my painting studio.

    I am just starting out and was fortunate to take a one day portrait class offered in my community. I fell in love with oil paints - and doing portraits. I got this book to help me understand some of the concepts learned in my one day class. It did that & more. I love how he shares the actual mixing of colors to obtain that certain look.

    I highly recommend this for oil painting. The other reviewer is right, this is not for watercolors. Everything is different between painting with oil and watercolors.
