Reference Photos for Artists: Figures

A collection of photos of figures for artists to use as reference in paintings.

By

Use this collection of reference photos of figures for inspiration and ideas for the poses of people in a painting, including 'matchstick men' in the style of the painter LS Lowry. When painting a small figure, look particularly at the angles of the arms, legs, and body, as well as the light/dark tones in a figure overall. For tips, see How to Paint Small Figures from Photos.
