Are you ready to bring more force, feeling, and simplicity into your figure drawings? In this exciting course, you will draw from the live model exploring how gesture and structure come together to create powerful, dynamic and realistic drawings.
Each class begins with a focus on fast gestural drawings, utilizing line-of-action, simplified shapes, and expressive line to capture the essence of the pose. In the longer poses, emphasis shifts toward accuracy, structure and proportion using sighting & measuring techniques, basic anatomy, and planar construction. Further exploration of compositional framing, linear perspective, and the tonal scale will bring a unique aesthetic appeal to your drawings.
