About this item
Sculptures and statues have been popular subjects for observational sketching since the Renaissance, and the art of drawing statues has regularly been included in teaching programmes at art schools. Seen as perfect examples of the highest standards of beauty, style and composition, and as a tribute to classical art, capturing statues on paper allows artists to learn the techniques and study the human form before working from a live model. In this inspirational and easy-to-follow guide, best-selling artist, Giovanni Civardi, teaches the art of drawing statues, sharing his expert advice on recreating beautiful sculptures in pencil with lifelike detail, observing closely human anatomy, form and structure. This comprehensive overview of the techniques involved suits beginners as well as those more experienced in life drawing, and includes advice, suggestions and practical guidance on all aspects of drawing from life.
