Mastering portrait drawing is not only for the “talented” among us. Anyone can be taught. If you know how to write your name with a pencil, you can learn how to draw a portrait with a pencil.

In this book you will complete several portrait projects, gaining new skills as you go along.

Designed for beginners, this book is suitable for both adult and motivated older children (approximately age 11 and above). While the book does not assume that the student knows much about drawing and art, some prior experience with beginning drawing is helpful. (Some additional beginning drawing books are recommended at the end of the book.) The first chapters give you a supply list (pencil, paper, and eraser), introduce you to beginner drawing concepts (how to get an accurate outline of what you want to draw, how to shade). You will quickly plunge into drawing your first portrait, with a lot of guidance and advice along the way. While several chapters use the grid method to help the beginner to gain accuracy, later chapters focus on freehand drawing and drawing from life. Don’t worry about having enough “talent”! Talent is NOT required! Don’t feel discouraged if you have tried to draw portraits in the past and didn’t like the results.
