Book Image How to Draw Lifelike Portraits from Photographs
by Lee Hammond
Read our Review

If you’ve always wanted to draw beautiful, realistic-looking portraits of your favorite people, this step-by-step guide shows you how to do it – better and more easily than you ever thought possible.

Lee Hammond quickly teaches you how to add the illusion of three-dimensional highlights and shadows to simple shapes using pencil shading and blending. After you've got the basics down, you’ll learn how to use the same techniques to portray every feature of the human face. You'll also discover how to figure out what the features of your photographed model really look like so you can draw them from different angles. Then Hammond shows you how to put all those features together to create a lifelike portrait that truly captures the individuality of your subject.

Book Image Portraits of the Presidents : The National Portrait Gallery
y Frederick S. Voss

The most visited gallery of the National Portrait Gallery is the Hall of Presidents, the collection of portraits of America's elected leaders. More than a visual record of holders of power, these images evoke the careers and legacies of the men they portray. An authoritative, engaging text by Frederick Voss illuminates the pictures, offering a concise history of each President and telling how each portrait came to be made. Included in this book are images of every American President, from Gilbert Stuart's famous depiction of George Washington, to Elaine de Kooning's John F. Kennedy and Norman Rockwell's Richard Nixon, and concluding with Chuck Close's photographic portrait of Bill Clinton.
