About This Item
An engaging and information-filled guide to hooking portraits that includes time-tested fundamental principles that explain the process in detail. The book also covers how to closely observe a subject in an analytical way—a critical skill for creating a face. Based on the author’s popular Hooking Faces workshop.
Tish Murphy brings to her craft a lifetime of creating, grounded in her fine art and art history background. She made her mark in the rug hooking world through her skill at hooking faces and ability to teach her techniques to others. Her classes are an intersection of challenge, intensity, and lots of fun—and she hopes that the information in this book will provide the same.
As the author says, “the goal of sharing my accumulated knowledge is that, starting wherever you are, you will gain confidence, make progress, and experience the great satisfaction of hooking a portrait.”
