Dear Fellow Art Lover

For many artists the human figure remains an unachievable ambition…

It is even beyond many professional artists…

For many years I found it incredibly hard and wondered if I could ever master figure drawing...

It doesn’t matter how well they can draw and paint, lifelike figure studies continue to baffle and defeat them. Landscapes offer some painters no problem. Technical subjects, like the train painting below, are easy to do...

The one subject that can beat them is the human body...

Strange isn’t it? You see examples of the human form almost everywhere you look. But, when it comes to painting and drawing your children playing with their toys… you are stuck.
  • You could paint still-life pictures… no trouble
  • You can draw a house… real easy
What might be wrong with the train painting?

Could it be that it has no life? Apart from steam and smoke, it is purely mechanical. This is great if that is all you want to do... but there can be more.

So, what is it that makes it hard to draw and paint people? Is there some magic trick that the Old Master Artists have hidden away? Or, is it that some artists are never going to be capable of capturing a reasonable likeness? You will be surprised by the answers!

Adding people to your artwork gives it humanity. And, with people in the picture, there are stories you can tell. You should always tell a story with your Art. A story gives greater depth and appeal... you develop depth and reason.

It is true… there are things you need to know about Figure Sketching that other artists will never understand… small things that will give you an edge over the rest of the struggling artist world.

The truth is that most artists will not take the time to discover the secrets behind Figure Sketching...

Are you are different from them?

Do you want to add life to your paintings and drawings?

In 3 stages, the Figure Sketching Package reveals some of the hidden secrets behind drawing and painting successful human body forms.


The Figure Sketching Secrets of Drawing and Painting package brings together...

1.  Anatomical Diagrams
2.  Figure Sketching
3.  Lessons In Figure Painting In Watercolours

****  Make sure you don't miss the Special Offer below  ****


1.  Anatomical Diagrams by a past Antique and Life Class Master and Lecturer on Artistic Anatomy in Glasgow School of Art.


This is what JOHN CLELAND, ex-Professor of Anatomy in the University of Glasgow, has to say...

"SCIENCE AND ART are indeed sisters, but they are very different in their tastes, and it is no easy task to cultivate with advantage the favour of both. Artistic Anatomy is in its nature a scientific pursuit..."

He adds...

"Properly conceived of, Artistic Anatomy undertakes the systematic study of the particulars of superficial form, the accurate description of them one by one, and the investigation of the structural and functional causes on which they depend"


In other words...

You don't have to be a Medical Doctor... you don't need to know everything about the human body to create good figure studies.

What you do need is an in-depth knowledge of the body structure (skeleton and skull). Also, it helps to have an understanding how the muscles join and combine with the bones to construct the shapes of body trunk, arms legs, hands and feet.

Horse Rider by Bernice Oehler

To create realsitic figure drawings you will be astonished by the
amazing simplicity. No wasted grand gestures of intricate detail... You don't need to see every eyelash and whisker, wrinkle and crease when a few curved lines and arcs can give so much more... Movement, Action and Animation.

Boys Head
Boy's Head by Jennie Moore


With Lessons In Figure Painting In Watercolours, 2 Medalists of the Royal Academy show you the secrets of traditional watercolor figure painting... transforming all your human anatomical knowledge and drawing skills into thoughtful lifelike paintings.

  • 2... Three-quarter length female figure studies
  • 2... Male head and shoulder paintings (including Boy's Head above)
  • 1... Female head and shoulder painting
  • 1... Hands and Feet painting

You are given a technique that is rarely used in modern watercolor painting. Rather than find painting results patchy and clumsy looking, as with modern watercolor paintings... the results are soft, subtle and sensitive.
  • This one technnique can be used for figure painting with acrylics and oils
Each of the paintings are shown in two stages of completion... in Part-finished and Finished conditions. More importantly...
  • You are given the selection of colors used for each of the 8 finished paintings
  • You are shown where to use the colors to create skin tones and clothing
