Session #023, Work #021

Tired after a wonderful hike today, I just focused on the very basics of drawing. I will plan to continue this tomorrow.

Not much to say here. I was kinda tired today after a wonderful hike. But I still wanted to try and get some drawing in.

The idea here is based on a concept that I have heard many times, “Work from the general to the specific”. I was going over one of my old art books that I had printing notes from years ago and an artist, I can’t remember who, gave specific steps and indicated his foundations for great drawing. Basically it is the Bargue style, also seen with Ted Seth Jacobs and Anthony Ryder, all master draftsmen.

So, I took all kinds of time just getting the general correct and seeing how to measure correctly. So far it turned out really well. Of course I didn’t get that far by the contours are pretty darn close.

My hierarchy of painting importance

  1. Drawing
  2. Value
  3. Edges
  4. Composition
  5. Color
