I'm trying to capture something of the world I inhabit, but it's really about my own journey. —Ed Hall, portraitist on the Long Island Railroad
Because most landscapes seem to have as many people milling around as the houses they live in, it's time to get out there and start drawing these folks. Draw your family, your friends, or that elusive perfect stranger. You know, the tall, dark one? Oh, wait—that's a different book.
In this chapter, we'll show you how to dress up your figures—not just in clothes, but by individualizing their features, bodies, and gestures.
