Eddie Armer graduated from art school in 1975 and became a graphic designer. After a long career, Eddie decided, in 2005, to concentrate on his two greatest loves: art and music. He began dividing his time between running art workshops in the UK and Italy, and working as a musician. Eddie lives in Kent, UK, and works with vulnerable adults through art and music. He also writes about drawing, and is a contributor to Artist and Illustrator Magazine in the UK. He believes creativity in art and music are intrinsically linked.

Hands and feet The challenging subject of drawing hands and feet is tackled by expert teacher, Eddie Armer in his new book, Drawing Hands & Feet. This comprehensive course guides the artist through each stage of creating accurate portraits of hands and feet, both at rest and in motion. Building on the anatomy of the subject, Eddie looks at the drawing materials, mastering proportion, perspective, light and shade, with tips and advice along the way and exercises and projects for you to put what you've learnt into practice. * Leisure Painter *
