Book Review: 名家画室素描手帖 (Contemporary Masters Series: Drawing Handbook)

名家画室素描手帖 (Contemporary Masters Series: Drawing Handbook) - 01

This is the portrait drawing book of Chinese artist 冉茂芹 (Mau-Kun Yin).

It's a 336-page paperback filled with mostly portraits of just heads, and a small selection of nude figure drawing. They are either drawn with charcoal or graphite. These beautiful portraits are actually just sketches but rendered with realism and form. Most of the subjects are Asians with really distinct features and head shapes.

This is not an instructional book although the author does give some tips in the introduction, written in Chinese and English.

You can contact Basheer Graphic Books to order the book.

Hi! I just found your blog

Hi! I just found your blog and I really enjoy and appreciate the book reviews you are doing, like these. I'm a bookseller/buyer, and just LOVE books like this - anything to do with pencil sketching - even the most basic instructional book can be such a joy to look through. I haven't seen any yet by Mau-Kun Yin, but now I'm going to keep an eye out for them. Thanks for the wonderful photos!
