In this fully revised and expanded book, Nicholas Beer examines the sight-size portrait method, in which the artist stands back at a distance to view the picture and sitter side-by-side and to scale. Nick demonstrates the technique in a series of projects that culminate in portrait painting. There are also sections on the history of sight-size, early treatises on portraiture, and the "philosophy" of seeing. This new edition also includes a Starts and Studies section, which looks at a series of unfinished paintings in detail to analyze the thought processes and techniques of great artists.
