Format: Paperback
There are quite a few books on drawing the figure, but unless you find an OOP Walter Foster guide to painting the nude, or want to fork over $ 100 for the Richard Schmid classic, there are very few on painting the figure. This book fills that gap nicely. Covers drawing, skin tones, the difference between color tones for a blonde and a redhead, selecting a model. Everything you need to accomplish the hardest task facing an artist - painting the female nude. The Gnat says buy it!

I am an amateur in painting and this book is very helpful in determining which colors to use for flesh tones and the anatomy illustrated is a excellent resource for the basic design of the figure. It's a good reference to use for each oil painting project.

Disappointed that a book that is intended to focus on color is actually in black and white until the final chapters.

This book has a lot of pointers... All on drawing people with oil paint and making them look realistic. Not really the kind of book you can read front to back but it is good to have as a reference.
