This class will focus on drawing the human figure in 20 minutes. We will focus on basic linear drawings and construction to help place the figure on the page to establish rhythm, structure and basic composition for the purposes of developing a longer drawing. Breaking down the figure into its basic elements and learning how to develop a quick, efficient and intuitive thought process is key. In this class you can expect to learn about the intuitive use of the Reilly Rhythms, anatomical information, quick analyzation and proportional drawing.
