2015 has been the year of learning to improve. I began the year looking into Classical Drawing and trying out some Bargue drawings. I think because of those, I’ve ditched the “grid method”. I also bought and read the book “Lessons in Classical Drawing: Essential Techniques from Inside the Atelier” by Juliette Aristides
This book was so great and got me excited to try drawing more than just portraits, although I haven’t tried too much yet.
Most recently I actually followed an online drawing course from a legit art school in Chicago called Vitruvian Studio. This online portrait drawing course was exactly what I’ve always wanted in a drawing course. The instructor explained things in such a way, and with real time demonstration, I had so many a-ha moments and I got so much out of it.
I have drawn a new drawing since finishing the course but I haven’t scanned/photographed it. Hopefully that happens tomorrow, but I will say that it is a redraw of a drawing I did in December to show the difference and improvements. I think there are many.
