Learning how to “draw like that”: contemporary realistic drawing
Contemporary Realistic Drawing is measured, focussed and detailed. The key to accurate representational drawings is as much in looking, seeing and contemplation as it is putting pencil to paper.
Utilising both observational drawing and reference images we will achieve realistic looking drawings by learning how to realise correct proportion, capture finer details and portray textures. Our achromatic drawings in mediums of charcoal, graphite and pen will focus on mark making, tone, form and technical skills.
This class is for any skill level, it is ideal for beginners wanting to learn how to approach representational drawing to more practiced artists wanting to hone their skills or learn a new technique.
