Bargue drawing plate 1 and eye number six. I was trying very hard to get the line here just perfect.

One hour is not a very long amount of time to spend on these drawings. I still need to strive for perfection here, it will only help me more in the future.

Its interesting that this is the first plate of the course. A whole bunch of eyes. It makes since because the whole purpose of this is learning to see.

The Drawing


The Setup




I knew that the top brow line above the eye was too far down, but I left it there anyway. Luckily I fixed the bridge of the nose placement, that was much farther off previously. The most important part of these drawing is learning to judge distances. And even though this drawing is not perfect I feel like I’m getting better at being able to see differences in shapes much more accurately.
