Quick Bargue Drawing

A quick Bargue drawing. Ear number 5 of plate 4.

I bit of a rush though this Bargue drawing, it only took me 30 minutes. I wanted to go through it pretty fast, but at the same time I wanted to focus on my lines and try to get then as decisive and confident as possible, even if I had to trade some accuracy for it.

Drawing Comparison


I may have to buy some clear acetate, its hard to see the Bargue drawing under this tracing paper. But, you don’t need to be able to see perfectly though this to see all the errors. I was expecting this to be off because I worked so fast. I think the next Bargue drawing I do, I may spend three times as long to see if I can get the accuracy perfect and end up with confident lines.
