Figures – they look like they should be really difficult to draw…scary in a way! I used to think that too….until I faced my fears and found it all to be untrue! In this class I will show you how you can create beautiful emotive figures….and it’s really quite simple, if you follow the steps 🙂
The price for this class is US$59
Using this loose style of watercolour, and with scratchy pencil lines, we really capture a quiet emotion in our work. We use simple yet dynamic poses that convey a sense of who each girl is, you can really feel what they feel. Anguish, heartache, joy, vitality, it’s all there, each one with her story to tell.
We leave faces out of the mix, and concentrate on the body, the lines, the form, the vulnerability. You can get just as much emotion, even more, without needing to see the face, the body is the teller of all.
In this class we will start with simple “practice exercises” – the two girls that you see below. We’ll use 2 A4 sheets of paper and keep it small. (of course you can to more than 2 practice pieces 🙂
Then we head into our 3 main lessons, on A3 paper, a larger format so we can get to all the details. We’ll use big brushes, dark pencils, and I will show you each and every step, and how to put it all together.
I have a simple procedure for drawing the figures, and getting all the bits the right size and shape, it’s much simpler than you think, again follow the steps I outline.
Come and join me, and discover the joy (and simplicity!) in drawing and painting figures.
This class includes over 5 hours of video. You will watch the complete project’s from start to finish as I create these 5 girls.
