2 - 3 hour drawings by younger students in my Saturday Adult & Teen Art Class
Pre-Figure Study drawings of an artists' wooden model
by younger students in my Saturday Adult & Teen Art Class
Students focused on placing the whole figure in the center of the paper in a balanced way. Proportions were studied as well as the relationship between length, size and tone of the various parts of the figure. Contrast between secondary elements in the background and the main figure (focal point) were looked at. The drawings were finished by balancing the drawing, emphasizing the focal point/s and removing extraneous elements, if necessary.
