Andrew Loomis «Drawing the Head & Hands»
Originally published in 1936



The human body is the hardest thing to sketch, and of its parts, the head and hands are most intimidating. Loomis found a way to bring these challenges into the realm of the achievable for amateurs, with a text that, while a bit old fashioned in style, feeds the drawing brain. As a bonus, Loomis' own pieces, particularly the finished sketches, are deeply satisfying to view. To be sure, the style is genre-past, but the evocation is sweet, recent, and wholly American. One can see in the sketched heads the tender, yearbook faces of our parents now aged or departed.
