Biographical Notes

Cynthia Emerlye was born in Rhode Island, USA. Growing up in a creative family, she was introduced to homey and fine crafts at a young age. Her work is detailed and elegant, convoluted and richly feminine in nature, recalling the lush illuminated manuscripts of the Renaissance and the detail of William Morris. Her floral designs are highly distinctive and have been adapted to many decorative and commercial uses. Her paintings and illustrations, utilising a soft, rainbow palette, incorporate symbols and mythic iconography into their dreamscapes.

The Anatomy Sketchbook

Understand the body's framework, grace and utility, and each vital element in this cunningly guided sketchbook. Anatomical mastery was critical to Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci's success. They understood that to draw a figure you must first learn its underlying architecture. Touching on structural drawing, the skeleton, musculature and modelling, this sketchbook includes 20 pioneering examples of anatomical study alongside helpful directions from celebrated artists, scientists and art historians. Whether drawing hands with Rossetti, a skull with Cézanne or a torso with Giacometti, you will come to understand each element of the body and how they form a whole.Gain the technique and confidence you need to produce accomplished results.
