DRAWING FROM LIFE (model)
The human body has been the main field of study for artists for centuries because of its complexity. Figure drawing is an excellent way to study the two main pillars of drawing: light and form. Drawing from live model also offers insights to the dynamism and the strength of the human figure.
The Workshop is aimed at:
-Beginners, willing to be introduced in the world of realism
-Amateur or experienced artists
The long pose consists of exercises that can last several days where a deep understanding of different observation methods and technical ability come together.
The pencil studies are exercises that are used to train agility and skills using the most basic concepts: proportion, gesture, the difference between light and shadow, construction, line quality, etc. These exercises have a duration of two to six hours. Pencil studies are not meant to be finished works, but exercises to study and reflect on certain aspects of drawing.
The long pose is done in charcoal. Students in Barcelona Atelier of Realist Art, with advanced academic training, can do the exercise in oils.
