Figure Drawing for the Painter

Figure Drawing for the Painter

In this one-day class, students will learn various drawing techniques from an accomplished figure painter. Students will learn how to accurately measure the proportions of the head and figure while working from the model. Line, shape, and tonal relationships will be explored through exercises designed to strengthen anatomical understanding and the rendering of the forms of the subject. Students will work in a variety of drawing mediums and be exposed to a variety of techniques for their application and use. We will draw on white, toned and black paper with charcoal, graphite, conte, and pastel. The length of pose will vary from the relatively short gestural pose to the long formatted tonal rendering of the subject. Join us if you would like to draw better and have fun doing it. This class is appropriate for all levels of experience. www.robertlemler.com
