Summary, etc.: All the basics are covered in this down-to-earth practical approach. Includes information needed to capturing a good likeness, from understanding proportion and developing fluency to selecting the right medium. Step-by-step demonstrations accompany the text, where different media are explained in detail, giving examples of what to use to create specific effects. Also, there is valuable advice on the use of photographs for reference, on self-portraiture, and that acid test of the portrait painter, the commission process.
