In it are a selection of colord life drawings by Cedric F. Weaver, a twentieth century Canadian commercial artist. I like his simple use of black and terra cotta to produce effective drawings.
I included a step by step guide to drawing in colors that I drew after looking at Mr. Weaver's drawings, and a section of my own drawings that I did after seeing his work.
Two of Mr. Weaver's life drawings.
This shows the basic structure of the figure, the alignment of the body, particularly the alignment of the head with the center of gravity, and a basic outline.
The intermediate drawings show the addition of highlights, then shadows, followed by the addition of color and the blending of the colors to produce the final result.
Finished step by step example.
There are other drawings of mine like this in the last section of the book.
