Learning Figure Drawing
by Ken Manheimer published Aug 01, 2011 — filed under: ,
Some sketches (pastel and pencil) from a my first ventures into figure drawing. They're all from a five day workshop (in July, 2005) organized by my friend, Susan Singer, and conducted by a fantastic teacher, Thomas Bosket (who also tended to serve as the model). Both are terrific artists, as were the others in the class - i was the neophyte... You can see my progress through the course of the class - i was surprised by what i was able to do early on, with pastels, but was astounded by what i was eventually able to do with pencils - and also astounded by the depth of attention figure drawing demands, and rewards.

Tom insisted that we look at the subject and not at our drawing.

Tom insisted that we look at our sketches *less*. It's full of flaws, but there's something substantial there - I didn't know that I could draw faces at all!

One evening a few days in the students modelled for each other. I was exhausted, but hung out and tried to draw with a pencil. Maybe the exhaustion helped - i followed Tom's instructions to look at the subject, not the drawing, and was happily suprised when i eventually looked down.
