It gives step-by-step demonstrations for those wishing to paint the human form, in various media, with emphasis on the practicalities involved in rendering skin tones. Colour charts are included, together with exercises. This book is brilliant. Although it won't teach you how to paint, it will give you the greatest insight into how to mix colours for a near perfect image. Whether you are an amature or a professional, a book like this and at such a small cost is worth having on your shelf as an anytime reference.

Series: How to Art Series. Hardcover: 144 pages. Publisher: Chartwell Books (September 1, 2002). Through a clever system of charts using a palette of only 12 basic colors, author James Horton shows you how to create an infinite array of skin tones for people of pale, mid-tone and dark coloring. Specific modifications for pastellists are included, and though I'm just a beginner, I was amazed what I could do following his directions when I was only about a fourth of the way through the book. I recommend this very highly for all students, whether you're enrolled in an art course somewhere or just slugging it out on your own at home.
