Event description

Description

Want to get more ‘life’ into your life drawing by getting the basics right?

Learn to quickly and efficiently capture the energy and grace of the figure while maintaining good proportions. This short course with Christopher Clements will help you to get more expression and creativity into your life drawing.

By learning to see and draw the essential elements of gesture, rhythm and balance you’ll produce dramatic, characterful drawings. As you develop these essential foundations you’ll also look at different types of line to create a believable sense of form.

  • Learn how to identify and capture key aspects of the figure
  • Build your drawings around the most important qualities of the pose
  • Develop a sense of visual rhythm in the figure
  • Use line to express form and energy and drama
  • Blend gesture with good proportion intuitively

By the end of the course you will have learned an approach which will help you to concentrate on the most important aspects of the pose.

The emphasis on fast sketching will be invaluable in creating lively, dynamic figure studies.

This course is particularly suitable if you are just starting out or want to improve the foundation of your work. As you’d expect with any Northern Realist course, it’s a chance to spend time concentrating on your work beside like-minded friendly artists - with all the usual tea, biscuits and friendly conversation that goes with it.
