Now in its third edition, DRAWING: SPACE, FORM, AND EXPRESSION becomes the first introductory-level text to include a complete chapter on drawing the human figure. Building on the coverage of theory and skills that have made this text essential for students, the third edition continues to broaden its focus while retaining the clarity, logical presentation, and step-by-step instructions that have become its hallmark. DRAWING: SPACE, FORM, AND EXPRESSION begins with a comprehensive examination of the picture plane, investigating its potential for both three-dimensional illusion and two-dimensional design. This discussion, which includes a unique emphasis on the methods of angling and triangulation, offers effective strategies for establishing proportion and layout. It also features an easy-to-understand approach to the system of linear perspective. An analysis of how to represent three-dimensional form in structure and light leads to a discussion of subject matter, expressive values, and drawing from imagination. Drawing the human figure and uses of color add dimension to the student understanding. This edition includes updated and expanded versions of the book's two most popular features.Portfolio of Contemporary Drawingpresents an up-to-date survey of today's Modern and PostModern mainstreams as reflected in the art of drawing.Portfolio of Student Drawingscombines reproductions of excellent, sustained images by students from across the nation with a discussion that reads like a thorough, yet user-friendly class critique.
