Drawing the nude human figure is the ultimate challenge for artists. The body is subtle and mobile, and since every individual is unique, you will always encounter new aspects to draw.

Author Barrington Barber explains the various options you will encounter when drawing from life, such as choosing the model's pose and lighting the figure. You will explore how certain materials produce interesting results, and consider the overall composition of your life drawings.
