In this practical book, Nick Beer examines the sight-size portrait method, in which the artist stands back at a distance to view the picture and sitter side by side and to scale.
Nick demonstrates the technique in a series of projects that culminate in portrait painting.
There are also sections on the history of sight-size, early treatises on portraiture, and the 'philosophy' of seeing.
