November 10,11 (9-3pm, 1st hour optional for gesture poses)

Drawing the human form is a great way to hone your drawing skills, and a great way to strengthen your observational skills. During this mini-workshop, we will be working on one long pose over two days.  Each day will start with a morning demo, leading into a long pose with daily round of individual critiques, and further instruction as requested. At the end of the session, we will have a solid lay-in of the figure as well as a block-in of light and shadow. This workshop is ideal for artists with some drawing experience, however beginners are more than welcome, as these techniques can apply to any level of skill!

Starting the drawing:

We will explore time-honored techniques to create a structured and proportional form, touching on the sight-size method used in many atelier-style academies.  Bringing an easel to use at standing-height is highly recommended if you are hoping to try the sight-size method.

Light and Shadow:

The interaction between light and shadow is a wonderful way to develop form in a drawing.  We will focus on defining finding the borders between light and shadow, and developing unity through shadow.

Materials:

We will be working on a toned ground.  Both graphite and charcoal powered ground will be available.

If working with graphite: A range of 2H-3B pencils are recommended, along with a kneaded eraser and blending stumps, pencil sharpener, exacto, and pointer pad (a sandpaper pad on which to sharpen your lead) A mechanical eraser such as ‘Monozero’ is also helpful.

If working with charcoal: Soft and medium small willow charcoal sticks are recommended along with a charcoal pencil. A kneaded eraser and blending stumps, pencil sharpener, exacto, and pointer pad (a sandpaper pad on which to sharpen your lead) A mechanical eraser such as ‘Monozero’ is also helpful.
