Artist Parks claims that even beginners can draw faces realistically by perceiving proportions and accurately rendering, via facial mapping, the features that make one face distinct from another. In Secrets to Drawing Realistic Faces,
the author isolates individual features for detailed examination, using many black-and-white drawings to illustrate a range of techniques. Her useful and far-ranging discussion of materials includes an evaluation of pencils' graphite grades, kneaded and electric erasers, blending tools, and papers.
