Drawing from the nude has been a time honoured method of improving the artist’s eye, understanding, and technique. The sight-size method of figure drawing is a practical method of developing a direct relationship between the model and our artwork. By drawing the model the same size as it is in appears in our sight helps quickly improve our skill in representing the proportions and gesture of the figure in a visual and realistic style.
The course consists of step-by-step group and individual instruction in this technique over the 6 weeks in one 18 hour pose. Some of the specifics in the course will include use of materials and ways of looking as well as conceptual drawing skills such as design, drawing, gesture, proportions, simple anatomy, light & dark, form, values, manipulating contrast, edges, etc.
