When we draw a human figure, we draw a collection of basic shapes, simple curves, light and shadow. That’s it.
The trouble is, once we have fixated on the fact that we are drawing a human body, we begin to draw our own idea of what a body looks like. We forget to look at what’s in front of us.
In this workshop, we will break down the human figure into a flowing collection of simple shapes. We will examine anatomy to see what creates these shapes and how they connect to one another. We will take a deep breath, relax, and draw what’s on front of us.
