Here are a couple of the students drawing from a live model this afternoon.
And here are a couple of my more successful attempts.
One of the methods Bill used was to place semi-transparent paper over our drawing and with a dark pencil do some corrections. It was fascinating to see how he changed our drawings. (I probably don't need to tell you that his amendments are on the right!) He was showing the proportions of the head and the face and some ways of creating more realism.
But Bill isn't one to dictate that we all approach things the same way. His big thing is to give us the tools to mine our own personal vision.
I'm thinking I'll do some more drawing in the fall as it's a nice counterpoint to the abstract painting.
