The Artist – March 2021
They’ve done it again, but this time they – or rather Carole Massey, who has done the heavy lifting – have pulled off quite a conjuring trick. The rabbit has been pulled out of the hat, sawn in half, put back together again and released as a flock of doves, all without a step being missed. There’s new material here as well as the original and the book is not so much a course as a gentle progression through faces, features, expressions and poses. Keeping it to the head and shoulders simplifies things no end. Carole is particularly good on babies and children, too. If you’ve been wanting to try portraiture, but have been looking for a starting point, you’ve found it.
