Highly Recommended. By Patrick J. Jones. Foreword by Julie Bell. An in-depth exploration of life drawing by a contempory master artist AND teacher—covering gesture, short and long poses, foreshortening and contrapposto, and more—and delves into its more challenging aspects: such as measuring with rhythm, drawing with feeling, and developing a style. Packed with step-by-step, all-new drawing demonstrations and insightful commentary, the book also includes Patrick’s most recent anatomy and drawing study sheets, with gorgeous female nudes and more.

An in-depth exploration of life drawing by a contempory master artist AND teacher—covering gesture, short and long poses, foreshortening and contrapposto, and more—and delves into its more challenging aspects: such as measuring with rhythm, drawing with feeling, and developing a style. Packed with step-by-step, all-new drawing demonstrations and insightful commentary, the book also includes Patrick’s most recent anatomy and drawing study sheets, with gorgeous female nudes and more.

As a non-artist, I still have to say that this book is a joy to peruse. Jones does amazing work with the nude figure, at times reminding me of Frazetta and with his exactling realism and detail of arms, hands and legs, of Burne Hogarth. This also includes photos from his classes of the actual models posing for the drawings, which is very cool. So you don't have to be an artist to admire this fine work. Imagine if Frazetta had actually done an instructional book, and you have some idea of what this offers. Of course, Burne Hogarth did exactly that, and his instruction books were bestsellers for literally decades.

Jones also uses his fine artwork to feature essential notation, style tips, and at-a-glance memory clues.

This re-creation of the artist's successful live drawing workshops will enable both beginning and advanced artists to rapidly accelerate their skills and learn to draw with ease and confidence.
