In a companion volume to The Anatomy of Style, Patrick J. Jones shares more of his unique techniques and philosophy

The book is an in-depth exploration of life drawing—covering gesture, short and long poses, foreshortening and contrapposto, and more—and delves into its more challenging aspects: such as measuring with rhythm, drawing with feeling, and developing a style. Packed with step-by-step, all-new drawing demonstrations and insightful commentary, the book also includes Patrick's most recent anatomy and drawing study sheets, which feature essential notation, style tips, and at-a-glance memory clues. This re-creation of the artist's successful live drawing workshops will enable both beginning and advanced artists to rapidly accelerate their skills and learn to draw with ease and confdence.
