5th entry for April 3, 2012

These are two 10-minute studies that ended that evening, done with hard compressed charcoal on 22 x 30" sheets of Maidstone rag paper with a grey chalk underlay.

It may not seem obvious, but a good understanding of how perspective applies to 3-d forms is a significant underpinning for me of drawing people in space.  I teach a course starting next week at the TSA called `Structural Drawing' which  addresses those perspective principles as they apply to drawing objects, to better understand their 3-d nature. It starts with simple forms, and builds on that, right up to human bodies. It run 10 weeks on Friday afternoons, there is space, and the TSA website is here.
