Book - 1996
Rate this:
The lively spirit of children makes them charming subjects for paintings. But that same irrepressible nature makes actually painting them a challenge. In this book, Jessica Zemsky shares the lessons she's learned in her many years of painting children - from how to find natural poses to how to achieve, in all the popular mediums, "that certain quality" of color and light that brings a portrait to life. But this is not a "portrait" book in the traditional sense of the word. The emphasis here is on capturing the innocent joy of children at play, with siblings, with pets, indoors and out ... kids just being themselves.
