Postures

This must be the hardest thing for me to paint… postures. My brain simply cannot get the free-flowing and timeline movements that is required to paint a person that is in movement. So I opened the book that I have just bought, Freehand Drawing & Discovery, and James Richards simply guides us through the steps of drawing a person in movement. Quite cool! The next step will be for me to draw a real person in movement… can’t wait!

La chose qui est la plus difficile pour moi de peindre est des personnes en mouvement. Mon cerveau est simplement incapable de suivre les mouvements de la personne dans un temps donné. Donc j’ai réouvert le livre de Freehand Drawing & Discovery de James Richards et j’ai suivi ses instructions… pas mal trippant… et j’ai bien hâte d’essayer avec des vrais spécimens “humains”.
