Book Review: Painting Faces and Figures

Painting Faces and Figures by Carole Katchen is one of my favorite people-painting books. Katchen shows wonderful examples of creative poses in different media by a variety of artists. There are elegant, classic styles and quirky, comedic ones with a lot in between. Working methods are described and there are some step-by-step details, but on the whole, the book is more about personal style than techniques. Carole's web site is worth a visit. Her personal style is distinctive and colorful.
