Improving Your Figure Drawing with Greg Follender
We had a terrific time with our new offering, The Vital Line: Improving Your Figure Drawing with Greg Follender.
Workshop Description: Learning to draw the human figure from life in a gestural, vital way is an important skill to master for any aspiring artist.
In this workshop, short, timed sketching sessions will allow participants to quickly turn the figure in deep space and represent the nude form in more dramatic and challenging poses, while longer drawings will encourage the expression of volume and weight in the subject.
These exercises are designed to establish easy-to-follow anatomical formulas and increased recognition of important body landmarks. The sketch sessions will build confidence exponentially until students find that they can document the nude figure in dramatically less time than before, enabling them to concentrate more on the fluid expression of their marks on paper instead of the simple reportage of their subject.
Rendering the human figure in a loose, yet accurate manner can not only enhance an already well-seasoned drawing technique, but also help beginning artists to confidently render the human forms they conjure up in their mind’s eye.
