Last lesson we tried our hand at life drawing, concentrating on the proportions of the human figure. It’s really important to get the proportions right before you start adding the detail and shading. As most of you discovered, using your pencil to measure proportions can be a real help. Well done to all of you for tackling the tricky bits – hands and feet. Just keep practising and it will get easier, I promise!
Last lesson we tried some different media – charcoal and chalk, and we looked at scale. It’s always difficult at first when you try new things but by the end of the lesson you were flying with it. I hope some of you will continue to work in charcoal/chalk in the future, you achieved some great effects.
