Draw Faces in 15 Minutes will give students all the skills they need to achieve a striking likeness in a drawn portrait, using a proven method from a professional life-drawing instructor.

Artist and life-drawing expert Jake Spicer takes students through a series of carefully crafted tutorials, from how to put together a basic portrait sketch to developing portraits and then taking their drawings further. From understanding and constructing the head and shaping the hair, to checking the relationships of the features and achieving a lifelike expression, every aspect of the portrait process is examined, along with advice on which materials to use and how to find a model.

Spicer's expert guidance is beautifully illustrated and organized in easy-to-follow, step-by-step chapters, making it easy for anyone to draw a face.
