About the book

In this innovative guide, master art instructor William Maughan demonstrates how to create a realistic human likeness by using the classic and highly accurate modelling technique of chiaroscuro developed by Leonardo daVinci during the High Renaissance. Maughan first introduces readers to the basics of this centuries-old technique, showing how to analyse form, light and shadow; use dark pencil, white pencil and toned paper to create full range of values; use the elements of design to enhance likeness; and capture a sitter's gestures and proportions. He then demonstrates, step by step, how to draw each facial feature, develop visual awareness and render the head in colour with soft pastels.
