Drawing Accurately

Tonight my focus was all about drawing accurately. I was going very slow and repeating the same pose many times. The purpose is to try and get myself into the habit of putting lines down correctly all of the time. I find this is one of the biggest struggles for me and most artists. If IĀ could put down a line or a shape with correct placement, angle, width and height all the time then most of the difficulties of representational art would be behind me.

This is just my warmup page, you wouldn’t think it but it really helps to increase dexterity and drawing accurately.

I repeated this figure many times trying to get the proportions down well. Like all training the key to remembering is repeating.
