If the artists in this book have one thing in common, it is their ability to capture the elusive human spirit with their respective mediums - oil, watercolor, pastel, colored pencil, gouache and acrylic. By their example, you'll discover ways to: convey personality with expression or attitude, enhance your subject with color, communicate a certain mood or emotion, portray meaning with symbolism, use light to define your subject, describe your subject with a pose or gesture, tell a story with setting or props, and set the stage with design and composition. You'll also get insight on using photos, working from life, composing a multiple subject portrait and more.
