|Anatomical Drawing #1 - Reign and Dave, 18"x 24", Graphite on Paper, 2017|
Dan Thompson's lesson today was all about the knee so it felt only right to focus on the knees of the models. This drawing is great for comparative purposes. There is a lot of difference between the male and female model's knees.
There is balancing act between what is there observationally and what should be there. The puzzle of observing a body and relating it to a theoretical system individual to the artist. Keeping it interesting is always the challenge of these poses.
Before class next week I hope to get the background nailed in.
