Drawing the human face has a timeless and universal appeal, though it's often perceived as being difficult to achieve.

Carole's book removes the mystery from portrait painting, and makes the subject accessible to even absolute beginners.

She shows you in easy step-by-step stages how to use line, tone and form to capture a likeness and give it both personality and expression.

Containing simple exercises along with longer step-by-step projects, this book leads you by the hand through the different elements of the face, allowing you to gradually build your skills before leading on to successfully describing your subject's likeness and character.

Composition, clothing, props and more personal characteristics like age and hairstyles are all covered.

The book also includes information on drawing from life.
