Get to grips with this challenging subject in no time with Hazel Soan!

Created by bestselling artist and writer Hazel Soan, it's bursting with simple, step by step guidance and easy-to-follow illustrations - the perfect inspiration for artists of all abilities - from those completely new to painting to the more experienced wanting to learn something new.

Whatever medium you're using, a simple figure in a landscape can add scale as well as a human dimension that together make for a more natural feel. These figures don't have to be detailed, but you do need to get the proportions and attitudes right and Hazel will show
you how to do this reliably and confidently.

Hazel's method is simple and to the point. Never overburdened with analysis and explanations, she teaches through concise instruction and plenty of examples that
will have you learning quickly. If all you want is figures in a wider setting,
this quick overview will be more than enough. However, if your ambitions do stretch to
portraiture, there's also enough here to get you started on the right road.

On the DVD, Hazel covers the importance of proportion and pose, as well as how to capture light and shadow, paint realistic clothing, and how to tackle portraits, before finishing with a sunny café scene, full of light and shade.
