To draw the figure effectively it's key to understand how the human body is structured. One way of doing this is to think of the head, rib cage, pelvis and limbs as simple three dimensional volumes - slightly distorted cubes, blocks, eggs and cylinders - and how they connect. To learn more, join Lizet Dingemans and draw three dynamic acrobatic poses of Emma. Materials: Charcoal on white paper.
This session will start in 1 day's time.
Luca Indraccolo
Sunday 21 July, 2024
When you draw a portrait, you don't just copy what you see. You make choices about how to simplify and represent your subject, especially when you're working from life. This means you have freedom in how to design your portrait. In this session, Luca Indraccolo talks about establishing tonal design in your drawings to give them coherence and impact. Materials: Graphite pencils 2B, B, HB, H on ivory Stonehenge paper A4. Putty rubber and pencil eraser

There's a knack to drawing tattoos. On the one hand, they're often a key part of somebody's identity, so you need to get them right. On the other, you don't want to draw *too* much attention to them, over-render them, or distract from the form of the limbs they follow. Join us for this online session with Lizet Dingemans and model Sophie to learn more. Materials: Black pencil on white paper

To make your drawings truly three dimensional you need to understand how light travels across the form, and how you can think of the light and shade in terms of different value bands, ranging from the darkest darks to the lightest lights. We call this 'the classical order of light'. Materials: Black and white pastel pencil on grey paper.

Drawing hair can be exceptionally difficult. It's all too easy to try to draw each individual strand. Instead, you should focus on the large shapes. But you still need to portray the texture, judicious details and work on edges. Materials: Willow charcoal and white paper.
